The magnificent California Condor almost disappeared from the face of the earth because of careless human activity. Primarily due to lead poisoning from ammunition found in their food sources, there were only 22 condors left in 1982. Thanks to human intervention, today the condor is once again soaring over the mountains of the American West.
Join representatives from The Friends of the California Condor Wild and Free to learn about this incredible bird, how it has adapted to multiple challenges and what needs to be done to ensure its continued survival.
This free open-to-the-public event is a part of VHC's ongoing Environmental Speaker Series.
