California Condors Soaring Again

California’s San Diego Zoo has welcomed another newly-hatched California condor into its nursery, the latest addition in a conservation program credited with rescuing the species from extinction. The condor, with a wingspan of more than nine feet, was all but wiped out just 25 years ago, but the zoo’s efforts have ensured the species is soaring again. Photo Credit: Jim Bahn via Flickr.

Contrary to popular beliefs, zoos are involved in conservation! :-)

I do volunteer work at my local zoo and I know first hand of its involvement in many programs/projects. This zoo will also start participating in the condor reintroduction program in about 2 weeks - exciting!!!
