Return of the Condor

The condor that will be on display was the last female in the wild in 1986. To save her species from extinction, she was taken into captivity to become part of the captive breeding program and given the designation AC8 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. She was one of 27 birds that founded today’s population.
