Summary "California condors once soared the US Pacific Coast, but by 1982, their dwindling numbers forced conservationists to bring the few remaining birds into captivity. California Condor follows the condor's journey from its brush with extinction to today's efforts to eliminate lead poisoning and other threats that continue to endanger the species. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index."--Publisher's website.
