Sophie,
I also did a grad school paper arguing in favor of capture and breeding 
to save the species. It was quite a controversy at the time (late 
1980's) as there were only a few in the wild. Glad the condors are 
hanging on.  Mary Mushinsky, Wallingford

As a result it has no tags on it. What a nice surprise being reared under the radar! There are now about 425 condors in existence with 219 in the wild in California, Arizona, Utah and Mexico.
