Earth Day – California Condors at Pinnacles National Park

On this Earth Day, I would like to salute the National Park Service and the the Pinnacles National Park “Condor Crew” of volunteers for helping to re-introduce the California Condor to the wild…and, fight off extinction of this bird.

From the web site, “Pinnacles National Park joined the California Condor Recovery Program (Run by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service) as a release and management site in 2003. The park currently manages 33 free-flying condors. For more information on individual condors, visit our profiles page. Park biologists use a variety of techniques to manage and monitor the population.”

While the fight to save the California Condor from extinction is not over, the story of the fight to save the largest bird in North America is a fitting tribute on Earth Day.  People can make a difference by taking action.

If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
