All voluntary donations made during the bird show go to support The Condor Fund, which utilizes its trained condors to spread the message of condor protection and conservation and also focuses on legislation and conservation breeding of rare species to help them survive the destruction of their natural ranges.

The Condor Fund is sharing a portion of this summer’s donations with The Grand Canyon Condor Cliffs facility operated by the Peregrine Fund and the Programa Conservacion del Condor Andino.
