(Washington, D.C., October 13, 2007) California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
signed legislation today intended to protect the endangered California Condor.
There have been 276 documented cases of lead poisoning of California Condors
since 2000, and a dozen deaths possibly linked to lead. Only 127 of the birds
currently fly free in the wild, 70 of them in California.
