California Condors are a huge contribution to our society.
California Condors help us by eating all the dead animals left behind by hunters and natural disasters/causes, such as death, accidents and or human interaction. They also help prevent diseases from being spread and harming other life forms. Condors don't hunt. Instead, they scavenge for dead animals. Since the California Condors eat the dead remains of animals, they help prevent the spread of deadly diseases. The condor helps humans with clean up duty and to help other animals stay away from endangerment.
- They help with clean up
- Endangered species that help other life forms on earth
- They're getting lead poisoning by the dead animals hunters leave behind
California Condors help with preventing diseases from being spread around. If there were no scavenger birds, we'd have a lot of animal decay and harmful viruses being spread about. Habitat loss is a huge problem for these magnificent birds. Power lines and lead bullets from hunters are also a bigger problem as well.
Cost to conserve/RESOURCES required by the species
The California Condor is a really expensive animal to care for due to the size of their habit and more.
The cost to care for the California Condor is 20-22 million dollars. Their food ranges from the carcasses of large animals, such as deer, to small rodents (mice, rabbits, etc.). This food source is rather costly and is the main factor for the hefty price.
The condors are being killed by habitat loss, lead bullets, and power lines. It'll be a huge battle between the state and the Justice system for the banishment of lead bullets and deforestation.
