A young California condor : Stock Photo
Bred from a pair of founder condors, this bird cannot be released into the wild because her repeated contact with humans has erased her natural fear of them, lowering her chances of survival. In 1987, all remaining condors were captured and their numbers have since increased from twenty-one to seventy-nine. Among the most expensive attempts to save an endangered species, the Condor Recovery Program costs about $750,000 a year.
