I have been researching condors and their ecology for the last six years, studying how these intelligent and curious birds interact with each other in complex social groups and how they catch the winds that allow them to soar across their mountainous habitat with minimal effort. I am grateful to be part of a program that is acquiring much-needed scientific information to enhance the conservation management of the condor and contribute to the successful restoration of this magnificent species back into the wild.
