To tell the story of the California condor, some authors have stepped into the mind of a bird. This post looks at 5 examples.
On 23 October 1976, the National Audubon Society held its Symposium on the California Condor in San Rafael, California. The speakers included representatives from Audubon and from state and federal government agencies. In this post I offer a brief report based on the published proceedings of the symposium.
To describe the state of an endangered species – its population size, likelihood of extinction, and so on – some authors give pages of details, some offer a straightforward sentence or two, and some provide codes. This post considers status codes assigned to the California condor beginning in the 1960s.
What is the penalty for harming a California condor?
In 1981, the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society held a conference concerning the California condor. A transcript was published the next year. However, this document is not currently in a library (at least a library that is part of the WorldCat network).
As I have an original copy of the conference proceedings, here are some details about the conference and excerpts from the presentations and discussions.
