Was it too late to save the California condor? For thousands of years, these amazing birds soared above North America. Yet by the mid-1900s, hunting and contaminated food supplies had pushed condors to the brink of extinction. Could scientists and wildlife officials find a way to help the California condor survive? In California Condors: Saved by Captive Breeding, children relive the inspiring and heroic efforts of people who stepped in to save this remarkable creature when all seemed lost. Through this true tale of wildlife survival, kids discover the bold and creative ideas that Americans and their government have used to protect and care for the countrys endangered wildlife. California Condors: Saved by Captive Breeding is part of Bearports Americas Animal Comebacks series.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–6—These titles introduce the work of scientists to restore California condors and red wolves to viable populations in the wild. Each book begins with the day of a captive animal's release into its natural habitat. Then, the book goes back to trace the decline of the species; the plan for capture, breeding, and release; and a review of the success of the endeavor. The narratives, meant to be read straight through, flow well and paint a clear picture of the trials and triumphs of each project. Crisp photos and maps on every page work well with the text and give faces to the scientists and animals. The back matter includes a facts page, information on related species, and an up-to-date reading list. These useful books will work equally well for curious readers who enjoy narrative nonfiction and those with assignments on either species.—Ellen Heath, Easton Area Public Library, Easton, PA
