Supplemental feeding program for California condors

June 16, 2010

A 2-year supplemental feeding program for the endangered California condor (Gymnogyps californianus) was of insufficient length to definitely show that a dependable food supply will stimulate additional breeding; however, production did increase during the study, and food supply appears a likely cause. Because no undesirable effects of feeding were noted, and because condor production is now critically low, an expanded supplemental feeding program is recommended.
