After years of work and efforts of the GPLF and colleague institutions involved in the GNTCA, Huayra, Killari and Churi finally discovered the wild this Friday, 25th of November 2016. They are the very first captive-bred condors to be released in Ecuador. But this is just a first step (yet a very important one) in the fight for the survival of the critically endangered Andean condor in Ecuador. We have now to monitor those three juveniles to make sure everything goes well for them and keep working in breeding and education to make this event not just a one-shot but the start of the come back of the species in the country.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped us in this long process and let’s keep moving forward !
