Film screening to benefit Raptor Center

PitahsiEnteringNestW

Pitahsi, who was hatched in 1992 in the Los Angeles Zoo, was released at Bitter Creek National Wildlife Refuge in November 2006. In 2008, she mated with younger male, condor 247 and has three failed nest attempts in the wild. Pitahsi and 247 fostered two zoo-bred chicks since 2008 including condor 599 and raised a third foster chick on the refuge in 2012. Courtesy photo

The California Raptor Center will host a benefit screening of “The Condor’s Shadow,” a documentary that follows a year in the endangered species recovery effort, on Saturday, Sept. 28, at UC Davis.

The film explores the work of biologists, zookeepers and scientists are making on the bird’s behalf and tells the story of a condor named Pitahsi, according to a news release. Biologist Joseph Brandt and filmmaker Jeff McCloughlin will take questions after the screening.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Raptor Center at UCD.

Two kinds of tickets are available:

* A $50 ticket will provide entry into a 4 p.m. wine-and-cheese reception and raffle at Gunrock Pub, as well as entry into the film. McGloughlin will be on hand, and visitors will have the chance to have their photo taken with one of the Raptor Center’s resident birds.

These tickets must be purchased in advance, by following the link at www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/whatsnew/article.cfm?id=2759.

* A $10 ticket buys a seat to the screening, which will be in the Sciences Lab Building lecture hall, Room 123. These tickets will be for sale online or at the door.
