Came across this one: Via El Comercio Peru (Google translate with authors corrections for clarity)
Staff of the National Forest and Wildlife Service (SERFOR) released a condor in Huarochiri, which is in the highlands of Lima. Dominic Monaghan, actor of the ‘Lost‘ series and ‘The Lord of the Rings‘ accompanied the team of the institution as part of the recordings for their series of documentaries about wildlife ‘Wild Things’.
Monaghan appears in several of the pictures in this photo gallery. As reported, the Andean condor female was released just over 3,400 meters above sea level (masl), in the district of San Antonio de Chaclla.
According SERFOR, it is the third condor released after two other specimens were reinserted into the wild last May as part of the National Plan Condor Conservation (2015-2025).
It is estimated that in Peru there are between 600 and 2,500 condors.
Hopefully, this fine bird will enjoy his freedom. Que te vaya bien amigo!
