Grand Canyon National Park: Condors By Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, 2019
- Grand Canyon National Park: Condors
California condors faced extinction in the 20th century, so they were placed on the federal Endangered Species list in 1967. A captive breeding program began in 1983 and six young condors were released into the wild just north of Grand Canyon at Vermilion Cliffs in 1996. The re-introduction program is now considered a success, with 71 condors recently counted in the Grand Canyon region and a total of 195 birds in the wild in the United States. There have even been several wild-born condors within the Grand Canyon. With an average wingspan is 9 feet across, these gigantic rare birds are a marvel to behold. The top 5 places to view them in the Grand Canyon are: 1. Yavapai Point, South Rim, 2. Yaki Point, South Rim, 3. Lookout Studio, South Rim, 4. Vermilion Cliffs, 5. Navajo Bridge, Marble Canyon. Rendered in the style of early 20th-Century travel posters by the award-winning artists of Anderson Design Group, this classic design will look great as a framed print, canvas, metal sign, canvas banner, as a postcard or a notecard.
