“25 Years of Condor Recovery in the Southwest: what have we learned and what's next?" presented by Tim Hauck, Condor Program Manager, The Peregrine Fund

The near extinction of North America’s largest flying land-bird and attempts to recover the California condor are known to many, but the details of the why and how are less known. The trials and tribulations of human history in endangered species management offer landscape-scale insights in an ever-changing arena of conservation. Should we succeed in recovering this species, it will stand as a testament of our abilities to observe, study, and respond accordingly to better manage preventable impacts to ecosystems and the species within. Lead poisoning remains the single greatest threat to recovery and implications for other less studied species are equally important. Science alone does not make conservation. How we proceed will have as much to do with success as the foundations of science we depend upon to detangle these complex issues.
