Summary

PUMALIN and LIQUINE are two condors named after the places where they were found in 2020, unable to fly or survive on their own. They were taken to a Rehabilitation Center (CRARChile) for their recovery, and TODAY THEY ARE READY TO LIVE FREELY. Both will be translocated to PATAGONIA NATIONAL PARK to be released in January 2022. The project seeks to return these birds to the place where they come from, and contribute to the education and appreciation of the community about this species.

Challenge

With a ten-foot wingspan, the Andean condor is the largest flying bird on earth and is listed as 'Vulnerable' on the IUCN Red List as they have faced significant population declines in recent years due to human action. This emblematic species of Chile and the Andean cultures plays a KEY ECOLOGICAL ROLE as a scavenger, accelerating the process of returning nutrients and energy to the system, keeping the ecosystem clean, and providing a healthy habitat for both humans and other animals.

Solution

The release of these rehabilitated condors will allow them to return to where they belong, contribute to a better understanding of their behavior, and promote greater awareness of this species within the community. A team of specialists will monitor the birds before and after they are released via satellite transmitters. The project will be complemented with intense education and divulgation activities with the condor as the main theme for children and adults.

Long-Term Impact

Increasing public awareness and understanding of the ecological role of condors are essential to their protection. Through research, monitoring, and dissemination of the ecological value of the condor, we seek to promote public policies and involve local communities to conserve this critical species for the Patagonian Ecosystems and prevent us from adding more names to the list of species on the brink of extinction.
