I have been working with the California condor program developing release techniques and release sites for over 35 years. I think the program's greatest accomplishment is saving the species from extinction by breeding them in zoos (no small victory) and also reestablishing them in the wild in their historic habitat. We have yet to reach our ultimate goal of establishing self-sufficient condor populations, but we are approaching that success very rapidly. It is a great feeling to know I've had a part in saving a species and restoring them to the wild.

Wildlife is endangered, but there is hope. You can help us save species today.
