The California condor populations went into dramatic decline during the 20th century due to poaching, lead poisoning, and habitat loss. In 1982 all of the remaining 22 wild condors were captured and taken to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and the Los Angeles Zoo for breeding.  The number of birds began to rise and in 1991 they began to be reintroduced into the wild. As of last month there were 213 condors living in the wild. The survival of the species continues to be threatened due to lead poisoning.

were the inspiration for the names given to two African Great White
Pelicans, and those two zany birds have actually followed in the
footsteps of their namesakes. They're both comedic movie star actors who
recently starred in the 2011 release of Dolphin Tale, alongside the now famous prosthetic dolphin named Winter.
