Conservancy for the Range of the Condor
The Conservancy for the Range of the Condor, established in 2018, is a land trust based in Monterey County, California. Their mission is to acquire and protect expansive tracts of natural land over the estimated historic range of the California Condor. As of February 2021, they have acquired two land parcels, both in Monterey County. The Conservancy's property in the Carmel Valley covers 300 acres near the Anastasia Canyon region of the Los Padres National Forest. The Conservancy's Big Sur lots comprise 137 acres on a ridge overlooking the ocean above Highway 1, near the famous Bixby Creek Bridge.
In 2021, the Conservancy took on a new initiative, alongside former Congressman Sam Farr, to establish the Range of the Condor National Heritage Area. The Conservancy proposes that a federal National Heritage Area be designated over the flight range of the California Condor, and is actively working to advance this proposal.
