During the early 1800's the California condor occupied mountains along the Pacific coast from British Columbia to northern Baja California. By the 1980's the condor's situation was dismal. The population had declined to less than 20 birds. These remaining birds were captured for captive breeding programs. Today there are 180 California condors in the wild due to the continued efforts of conservationists and captive breeding programs.
