More endangered California condors soon will soar above Pinnacles National Park

SOLEDAD, Calif. – The number of California condors has steadily grown over the past 30 years, from 22 left in the wild to about 500 now. Through recovery programs and collaborations in California, Arizona and Idaho, along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, endangered California condors are bred in captivity and released into the wild. In December, three birds will be freed at Pinnacles National Park.
