Condor L2

A condor population has been re-established in the area of the Vermillion Cliffs in Northern Arizona. The birds are numbered so that they can be constantly monitored. L2 is one of approximately 75 condors that reside in the Vermillion Cliffs area. They are frequently seen in the vicinity of Navajo Bridge. California condors were placed on the federal Endangered Species list in 1967. Only 22 condors were known to remain in 1982, while today the world population exceeds 400, with over 225 condors living in the wild. See Condor Viewing in the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument.
