The shirt maker Lacoste, known for its alligator logo, is offering limited numbers of shirts with the logos of endangered species, including the California condor. Part of the profits will be donated to IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
In this post I note Lacoste’s project and show photos of some “condor” shirts from my closet.
Interest in the California condor has long extended beyond the borders of the USA. In this post I consider 4 magazine articles that were published in Europe during the 20th century.
