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.
