California Condor Gymnogyps californianus

Project objectives

The primary objective is to establish a self-sustaining population of condors in the Sierra San Pedro de Mártir, Baja California, Mexico, as a counter measure to their extinction elsewhere in their former range.

As a release site, Baja has been spared intensive human development and therefore the risks from the two major factors limiting recovery elsewhere, microtrash and lead ammunition, are much reduced here, giving the birds a higher chances of success.

This project is implemented by San Diego Zoo.
