Bexar Audubon Society Monthly Meeting: California Condors

October 25, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Join us to discover the work of an avian paleontologist, Dr. Steven E. Emslie—a scientist who digs in caves, unearthing bones that help explain the change in distribution of birds over time. Dr. Emslie will present his program via Zoom, but we will also gather in person at Alamo Colleges District to view his presentation. The California Condor was once found all across North America during the last Ice Age. Today, the California Condor is critically endangered. It became extinct in the wild in 1987, but captive breeding efforts boosted their numbers. It has been successfully reintroduced to the wild, and a population of condors now live in Grand Canyon National Park once again. The fossil data have relevance to recovery programs of the present endangered population of California Condors.
