Summary "Saved from extinction in the 1980s, the California condor is an uplifting conservation success story - but the condor is not quite out of the woods yet. In a beautiful and moving documentary, The Condor's Shadow follows biologist Joseph Brandt into the historic nesting habitat of the iconic California condor. It's here that the challenges of rebuilding a self-sustaining population of the species are made real. Suffering from the very same human-caused threats that took the bird to the brink of extinction thirty years prior, Joseph and his team go to extreme lengths to enable the species to fly free once again. Biologists, captive breeding specialists, scientists and a feisty condor named Pitahsi frame the narrative in this engaging story of recovery. Through interviews with contributors to the condor recovery program and remarkable footage of the conservationists working in the field, the film explores the challenges of an endangered species program and the character of this strange and wonderful bird."--(From the case.)
