New California Condor Arrives at Santa Barbara Zoo


This month, the Santa Barbara Zoo (500 Niños Dr.) acquired a six-year-old female California condor. While this avian species may not be known for its good looks, “Number 327”—as the cutie will be known until being named—sports colorful adult plumage and, as an endangered species, is one of S.B.’s most unique animal residents. Visit 327 at the zoo between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $10-$12. Call 962-5339 for more info.
