Condor numbers dramatically declined in the 20th century due to poaching, lead poisoning and habitat destruction. In 1987, a conservation plan put in place by the United States government led to the capture of all the 27 remaining wild condors. These surviving birds were bred at the San Diego Wild Animal Park and the Los Angeles Zoo. On December 12, 1996 six condors were released atop the Vermilion cliffs. This was the first time condors had been seen in Arizona since the early 1900's. Since December of 1996, program personnel have soft-released approximately 6-10 birds per year. Each condor carries two radio transmitters and are monitored daily by up to 10 field biologists. There are now over 70 condors flying free in Arizona.
