Context (contribution to biodiversity): The California condor is not a animal that is worthless the condor can help by using what he can like eating dead remains of animals and being the scavenger he is.
Thesis: The California Condor is a scavenger and helps our society and biodiversity.
Main reason #1: California condor contributes to biodiversity.
Main reason #2: The California condor has a lot of stuff related to humans.
Main reason #3: People also bring income to the zoo which benefits the condor because of how much it cost to keep it.
III. Ecological functions
A. Introduction (topic sentence): The California condor is not a interactive animal it usually lives alone.
B. Evidence #1: If you save the California condor it can be a benefit for the biodiversity and the condor is a keystone species and if it dies the ecosystem will collapse.
1. Evidence #1: If you save the California condor it can be a benefit for the biodiversity and the condor is a keystone species and if it dies the ecosystem will collapse.
2. Analysis of evidence B: If we don't save the California condor 5 other bird species will start to go extinct because of the biodiversity.
C. Evidence #2: The condor is a scavenger and it eats the dead remains of animals and it can survive for a while if not eating because it can fly for a while.
1. Analysis of evidence A: When there is a dead animals on the ground the condor can swoop down and just eat the meat that was left after some animal ate it.
2. Analysis of evidence B: The condor can fly up to 150 miles because they are called the cleaning crew. they also have a long wing span that will let them fly that far.
Rhetorical appeals/strategies: A strategy is that there were a lot of facts to interest the audience.
D. Conclusion: If we save the California condor than other species can survive and other animals that are in the keystone species with the California condor won't live a hard life if it is gone so we should stop all the people from shooting it down.
IV. Additional biological, medical, social, etc., appeals
A. Introduction (topic sentence): The California condor is like some other birds. The California condor are social birds just like humans.
B. Evidence #1: The California condor is like a gold eagle, bald eagles and red tailed hawk.
1. Analysis of evidence A: When it takes off it has to be high up because of its wing spans just like bald eagles.
2. Analysis of evidence B: The condor’s fur is just like the bald eagle and gold eagle when they spread their wings you can see some stuff that are similar.
C. Evidence #2: The California condor are social birds and do stuff together sometimes.
1. Analysis of evidence A: The California condor sometimes fly around in groups.
2. Analysis of evidence B: The condor’s sometimes go in groups to bath and sometimes go to a place in a group to sleep or rest.
D. Conclusion: The condor is not really a harm and they are a lot like humans and the condors are an interesting kind of bird.
Rhetorical appeals/strategies: some appeals are stuff that are related to humans like sleeping together and when you hear something or read something that is like you it will catch your attention
V. Cost to conserve/resources required by the species
A. Introduction (topic sentence): The California condor cost a lot, how much is it in total.
B. Evidence #1: The California condor started to decline and a captive program tried to but opponents started to say that it will cost to much to bring the population back up but the us government had agreed to let them try to bring it back up even after knowing that it will cost a lot to bring the population back up. If the condor went extinct than the Biodiversity will be ruined massively.
1. Analysis of evidence A: The condor is an expensive animal and is a hard animal to make people support.
2. Analysis of evidence B: The California condor is a big animal to the biodiversity and if it went extinct than a lot of other animals will be harmed so we have to do a lot to keep the California condor non extinct.
C. Evidence #2: The captive breeding program knew that it will cost a lot but they knew that they had to save the bird because of how important it is. But the program has a way to make it last long they would have two areas for the California condor one in California and one in Arizona.
1. Analysis of evidence A: The California condor probably would be gone but the program are smart since they are a program that helps a lot of animals from going extinct.
2. Analysis of evidence B: The program had used the California condors breeding habits by taking their first egg away from them so that they can lay another egg and increase the California condors population faster.
D. Conclusion: The California condor can not be easy released from captivity because it only lays one egg and the female condor sometimes likes to change areas to lay there egg.
Rhetorical appeals/strategies: Some rhetorical appeals were that there were just a lot of information popping up so that the brain gets interested and you keep reading.
A. Re-stated main thesis: he California condor is a animal that is big to it biodiversity and if you take it away the biodiversity can be tarnished and it had a lot in common to humans like being social.
B. Review of key points: Biodiversity,Keystone
C. Call to action: The condor went endangered because people would take away their habitats and the oil and gas that in the in which hurt the condors habitats.
