Episode #60 -- California Condors For April 19, 2007.  Twenty years ago today, the last wild California condor -- designated AC9 -- was captured and placed in a captive breeding program.  I talk about the condors, the captive breeding program and its results over the past twenty years, and my own history of trying to help endangered animals.

The picture at the right is of AC9 himself, who was released back into the wild in 2002.  It was taken in 2005 by nature photographer Dave Wyman, and is used with his permission.

Today's episode music is "Taking You There," by Jeremiah Fleming.  Theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
