Four California Condors will be released into the wild Friday morning, and you can watch.  

For the first time, there will be live streaming webcam footage showing the release in Big Sur.  

The release is scheduled to take place at about 10 a.m., when the Ventana Wildlife Society opens the door of the endangered birds' enclosure.  

They say it can take days or weeks for the condors to leave and the webcam will be left up for the whole time.

In 1987, the last wild California condor was taken into captivity to join the twenty-six remaining condors, in an attempt to bolster the population through a captive breeding program.

Through the effort of California zoos and the Ventana Wildlife Society there are now about 232 California condors in the wild.
