This is Episode 84. Our topic today is the challenge of saving bird species that are very close to extinction. Species like the Spix’s Macaw, which have tiny global populations—whether in the wild, or in captivity.
Other familiar examples are the California Condor and the Whooping Crane, whose populations bottomed out at 22 and 23, respectively. Rigorous conservation programs have since given these two North American species a fighting chance at long-term survival.
This episode is about species that we almost lost forever, but with great effort we’ve kept them from disappearing.
Many of these species, like the California Condor, aren’t out of the woods yet. They may be in better shape now than they were a couple of decades ago, but they still need lots of help.
In this episode, we’re first going to look at some of the biggest challenges faced by conservationists as they try to save species on the brink.
Second, we’ll talk about the tools and methods used to save birds.
