HARD TIMES FOR THE CONDOR

HARD TIMES FOR THE CONDOR


Description:

How long has MAN been trying to revitalize the LIFE of the CONDOR?

30? 40? 50 years?

They are worse of than EVER.
Condors are being found with amazingly high levels of ARSENIC and MERCURY in their bodies...

They were on the brink of EXTINCTION in 1980, when the last 27 GYMNOGYPS CALIFORNIUS were captured near the Pinos Mountains in California, for an intensive breeding program...

There yet remain 60 or so in captivity, 150 or so were released into the wild ten years ago...

And those released are still dying off at an alarming rate...

Their greatest enemy?

MAN.

Construction firms avid for their lands...

Pollution of their mountain habitats...

Outlaw POACHERS...

Nothing seems to increase their population...

It is almost as though their time on Earth is UP, and we just don't have the heart to let them GO....
