Condor Update- 4/1/2021 @ 1030am

Hi Viewers- As most of you have observed, Condor 943 has half of a can lodged on his lower beak. We first noticed it yesterday via the cam and we aren't sure when exactly the can became lodged, but we suspect within the last few days. The cam was able to give us a very close look this morning and we can see that it is half of a can and that it looks to be very well lodged on the lower beak.

Our current plans are to attempt to recapture 943 ASAP to remove it and hope their is no serious beak damage. It doesn't appear to be at this stage, but we won't know until the can is removed. Trapping any wild condor is no easy feat, so please keep up the great observations while we try to help 943. We will keep you updated.

Nesting update- Redwood Queen and Phoenix are cruising right along and we hope to see the egg hatch in late April. The 7 other nests in central California are also doing well.

Quick note- The cams have been experiencing signal loss, we are working with Explore to trouble shoot the issues.
Thank you for your patience!

Next zoom chat is April 29th at 4 pm, sign up at www.ventanaws.org

Just some bad news i read this early morning at https://explore.org/livecams/ospreys/osprey-nest

Dorothy HawkZon • 8 hours ago
God Evening My Osprey Friends. I have some sad news to tell you all, April the Giraffe 20 years has
passed away this morning was euthanized due
to her Alling arthritis in her body & legs. She was
a great ambassador to all Giraffes' to make everyone
aware of how great they are & she had the heart figures on her very special with her hay showers.
Have A Blessed night & God Bless April. She
will be forever missed. Dorothy From Sarasota Florida.



And From https://www.facebook.com/AnimalAdventurePark/
Animal Adventure Park 14 h ·
It is with the heaviest of hearts that Animal Adventure Park announces the tremendous loss of our beloved April the Giraffe. Euthanasia was carried out at April’s home in Harpursville this morning, due to her worsening arthritis, in accordance with the recommendations of her veterinary team. We grieve with her many fans, near and far, as we say goodbye to the giraffe that can be credited with making a foothold for giraffe and giraffe conservation awareness in the 21st century.
April the Giraffe became a viral sensation and household name in 2017, winning admirers around the globe as the world watched her labor and delivery with bated breath via a YouTube live stream. Since then, April has been one of the world’s most famous animals, and in turn, has made a profound impact on giraffe conservation, education and appreciation. While her hoofprints in her yard will erode in time, the imprint she has made on the hearts of people around the world will never fade.
At the celebrated age of 20 years old, April was in her golden years, with the captive management life expectancy averaging 20-25 years, far greater than the average lifespan of 10-15 years in the wild. We credit and thank the outstanding collective care provided by the park’s veterinarians and animal care team with keeping April happy and healthy during her more than five year stay at Animal Adventure.
Both teams have made every possible effort to keep her comfortable and prolong her life while managing her condition. Over the past year, accommodations were made and treatments performed, including yard substrate changes, installation of a state-of-the-art padded barn flooring system, coupled with farrier work, dietary and medical changes. April’s most recent veterinary exam identified the acceleration of April’s condition, prompting the determination that euthanasia was the humane and appropriate course of action.
Following the euthanasia, her body was escorted to the Cornell University Veterinary School by the Patch family, where a necropsy will be completed. She will then be cremated, and her ashes will be returned to Animal Adventure Park. To gain a deeper understanding of April’s condition and this decision, please review the following details from her veterinary team and caretakers.
Statement from Animal Adventure Park’s veterinary team:
“Beginning in the summer of 2020, the staff at Animal Adventure Park began reporting changes in April's mobility. The park's veterinarians radiographed April's feet in July 2020 and noted the onset of osteoarthritis. The radiographs showed a loss of joint space and subchondral bone collapse in her left hind leg, which can be expected in a giraffe of her age. In addition to the joint supplements, the park began multi-modal management of osteoarthritis including measures such as pain medications, anti-inflammatories, hoof trimming, installation of padded flooring and dietary changes in hopes of slowing down the progression of her condition. During each visit by the park's veterinarians, we assessed and discussed April's quality of life, which has remained top priority while managing her condition. Unfortunately, over time, what we saw was April increasingly shifting her weight from limb-to-limb, a continual decline in mobility and spending a lot more time laying recumbent. The most recent set of radiographs taken in early March to evaluate her condition, showed significant and progressing degeneration of the joints in her lower leg. The severity of her condition has been outpacing our ability to control April's comfort. The March 2021 observation reported advanced osteoarthritis, interphalangeal subluxation in the left rear hoof, and lameness and angular joint abnormalities in all feet.
Relating these arthritic changes to personal pets (dogs, cats, horse) and even humans, can help us better understand and relate to the condition. Lameness and arthritis are amplified in animals as large as giraffe. While a small dog can compensate, large species, like giraffe, can deteriorate quickly. Despite Animal Adventure Park's multi-faceted approach to mitigate April's condition, it is irreversible and advancing at a rapid rate. As hard of a decision as it is, for a veterinary team and facility, it is decided that euthanasia is the most humane decision to make at this time.”
“April the Giraffe brought joy to the millions who have watched her via the park’s Giraffe Cam, and the hundreds of thousands of visitors who have made the trip to her home in Harpursville, New York," said Jordan Patch, owner of Animal Adventure Park. "To her keepers and our team here at the park, she is a precious member of our family, and while we knew this day would eventually come, our hearts are hurting. April’s impact on animal conservation and appreciation is both immeasurable and lasting. The loss of an animal as loved as her will be felt in our community, around the country and across the world. We appreciate respect and empathy from April’s fans and the park’s supporters during this difficult time, as they grieve along with us. She will be deeply missed and fondly remembered. April, in her own special way, changed the world.”
Please share your memories and photos of April with us in the comments below.

Ventana Wildlife Soc Mod https://disqus.com/by/ventanawildlifesoc/ • 2 days ago Condor Update 4/12/2021 @ 6 pm

Hi Viewers-
As most of you heard, Condor 943 was observed with a can lodged on his lower beak on 3/31/2021. We first noticed it on the cam and we suspect it became lodged on his beak a few days before we first observed the issue. The cam was able to give us a very close look at his beak on 4/3/2021, just before 943 left the Big Sur area. We were able to confirm that 943 was able to drink but was unable to eat. Condors need their powerful beaks to tear chunks of meat off the carcass and 943's beak has been rendered useless with the can preventing him closing his beak, very unfortunate situation for sure.

We have been in trap mode since we first observed the issue but had no luck in Big Sur. Since the fire, we have been without our release pen and our best means to recapture birds. The rebuild is ongoing but we are still months away from having our pen back in place. After leaving Big Sur on 4/4/2021, 943 was signaled a couple days later near Pinnacles on 4/6/2021.
Exciting development....Pinnacles biologists reported today that they spotted 943 for the first time (since he left BS on 4/3/2021), very close to their release pen. Their release pen can also trap condors, so hopefully 943 enters the trap today or tomorrow. The Pinnacles crew reported that 943 appeared alert and he was able to move around quite well, definitely good news considering his predicament. Keep checking back, we will give you another update once we have him trapped.

Nesting update- Redwood Queen and Phoenix are cruising right along and we are hoping for their egg to hatch on or about April 24th (we estimate the egg was laid on 2/26). Stay tuned to the nest cam and try to spot the pip site around that time. The 7 other nests in central California are also doing well and we expect to have more eggs hatching over the next couple weeks.

Ventana Wildlife Soc Mod • 13 hours ago Condor Update- 4/1/2021 @ 1030am
Hi Viewers- As most of you have observed, Condor 943 has half of a can lodged on his lower beak. We first noticed it yesterday via the cam and we aren't sure when exactly the can became lodged, but we suspect within the last few days. The cam was able to give us a very close look this morning and we can see that it is half of a can and that it looks to be very well lodged on the lower beak.
Our current plans are to attempt to recapture 943 ASAP to remove it and hope their is no serious beak damage. It doesn't appear to be at this stage, but we won't know until the can is removed. Trapping any wild condor is no easy feat, so please keep up the great observations while we try to help 943. We will keep you updated.
Nesting update- Redwood Queen and Phoenix are cruising right along and we hope to see the egg hatch in late April. The 7 other nests in central California are also doing well.
Quick note- The cams have been experiencing signal loss, we are working with Explore to trouble shoot the issues.
Thank you for your patience!
Next zoom chat is April 29th at 4 pm, sign up at www.ventanaws.org :luck: :luck: :luck:

Hi Viewers-
As most of you heard, Condor 943 was observed with a can lodged on his lower beak on 3/31/2021. We first noticed it on the cam and we suspect it became lodged on his beak a few days before we first observed the issue. The cam was able to give us a very close look at his beak on 4/3/2021, just before 943 left the Big Sur area. We were able to confirm that 943 was able to drink but was unable to eat. Condors need their powerful beaks to tear chunks of meat off the carcass and 943's beak has been rendered useless with the can preventing him closing his beak, very unfortunate situation for sure.
We have been in trap mode since we first observed the issue but had no luck in Big Sur. Since the fire, we have been without our release pen and our best means to recapture birds. The rebuild is ongoing but we are still months away from having our pen back in place. After leaving Big Sur on 4/4/2021, 943 was signaled a couple days later near Pinnacles on 4/6/2021.
Exciting development....Pinnacles biologists reported today that they spotted 943 for the first time (since he left BS on 4/3/2021), very close to their release pen. Their release pen can also trap condors, so hopefully 943 enters the trap today or tomorrow. The Pinnacles crew reported that 943 appeared alert and he was able to move around quite well, definitely good news considering his predicament. Keep checking back, we will give you another update once we have him trapped.

Nesting update- Redwood Queen and Phoenix are cruising right along and we are hoping for their egg to hatch on or about April 24th (we estimate the egg was laid on 2/26). Stay tuned to the nest cam and try to spot the pip site around that time. The 7 other nests in central California are also doing well and we expect to have more eggs hatching over the next couple weeks.2021-04-15_15h31_02.jpg

Condor Update- 4/19/2021 @9am

Great news! 943 was recaptured this weekend and is currently recovering at the Pinnacles flight pen after a thorough health exam. The can is now off his lower beak and we are happy to report that he suffered no long-term damage. He will be released after he has sufficiently recovered. Big kudos to our partners at Pinnacles for a successful capture. Find out more about 943, and other news, including the current nesting status of our wild pairs and the latest update on the San Simeon birds at the next zoom chat on 4/29/2021 at 4 pm, with special guest, Alacia Welch, the Condor Program Manager at Pinnacles National Park.

What a beautiful post, Pascale! :love: :love:
I just love to see that photo of E17 & E18 in their "spa towels". And E17 never stopped bonking either. That is when I knew they would be o.k. :roll:
And just look at how much they have grown!
:eag: :eag:
Merci, Pascale.
Still looking for E9 :rh: October 12, 2019

Very sad news in Latvia Milda nest.
She had 3 eggs and her mate Raimis was missing after intruders showed up. Poor Milda had to leave the eggs often and for a long time.
One male finally stayed and started to brood eggs. Shortly after and very unexpectedly 2 eggs hatched, the step dad even brought food and fed the little ones sometimes. Everyone hoped...?
Early this morning the babies were left alone on nest under snow with freezing temperatures... both didn’t survive. Milda came back and did what she had to do with the youngest :cry1: :cryhanky:

RIP young babies - your lives were really too short :cry1:
Here’s a pic of the sweet little ones yesterday and their eggbert. They joined him, their suffering is over :cry1:
