California Condors Nest In Big Sur For the First Time In A Century!

"The California condor is an Endangered Species Act success story. In the 1980s, just 22 were left on Earth. Fortunately, an aggressive recovery program developed under the act is bringing this endangered species back to life. An estimated 276 birds now live in captivity and in the wild in central and southern California, Arizona, and Baja California. (The two now nesting in Big Sur are captive-raised birds released a few years apart in the 1990s). "
