Let condors soar in Redwood National Park

Action: Wildlife Conservation

February 3, 2017   Action Alert ID# 472

 

Exciting news: The National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Yurok tribe are working on a plan to restore California condors to Redwood National Park in Yurok ancestral territory. North America's largest bird was near extinction just decades ago, with only 22 individuals left in the wild. But today there are more than 400 condors flying high, and we have a chance to help restore them to their historic range.

Condors haven't soared in the Pacific Northwest in more than a century. And so returning the birds to northern California will restore a missing piece of the redwood forest's web of life and contribute significantly to the long-term survival of the species.

The Yurok tribe is spearheading the reintroduction effort because of the cultural significance of the condor in their traditions. The Yurok believe the condor was among the first peoples of the world, and it now serves as a symbol of the effort to preserve their culture.

Please join us in supporting this exciting plan and urge the agencies involved to make sure that the birds are safe in their new homes from lead poisoning, the main roadblock to condor recovery.
