California condors are with us today because of the dedication and hard work of many people. To celebrate these individuals, here are pictures of just a few of them.

I previously showed a photograph of John Borneman but I very much like this drawing (by a well-known artist) too:

To see that photograph of John Borneman and 9 more people of the saga, have a look at the post Pictures of people of the saga.
