Oregon Zoo Welcomes First Condor Chick Of 2022

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Zoo is welcoming its first California condor chick of the year. The chick hatched last week at the zoo's Jonsson Center for Wildlife Conservation where the chicks are raised to be released into the wild. There are eleven fertile condor eggs this year, so more chicks should be coming. The California condor is critically endangered and was one of the original animals included in the 1973 Endangered Species Act. In 1982, only 22 birds remained in the wild. Now, there are around 500 condors flying free.
