Effects of Hunting ban on California Condor

24 October 2020 # Hope

The California condor is a New World vulture, the largest North American land bird. This condor became extinct in the wild in 1987 (all remaining wild individuals were captured), but the species has since been reintroduced to northern Arizona and southern Utah (including the Grand Canyon area and Zion National Park), the coastal mountains of central and southern California, and northern Baja California.


Hunting ban and captive breeding program helps them to survive till now. There are more than 400 condors living in the wild now and they are breeding there as well which is great for their survival.
