California condors are an endangered raptor found in the western United States.
The condor nearly faced extinction by the 1980s when the number of birds dropped to less than 30. Their main cause of mortality is ingesting lead bullet fragments left in carcasses and gut piles by hunters.
Through captive breeding programs, the condor population has increased to nearly 300 in the wild and over 150 in captivity.
Filmed at: Vermilion Cliffs, Badger Point, Marble Canyon, and Navajo Bridge in Northern Arizona.

In February of 2015, I began a life-changing trip part-way around the world sailing from Argentina to South Africa, via Antarctica, South Georgia Island, and Tristan da Cunha on the bark Europa. These are some of the sights we saw.

A combination of video from 2014 and 2015 at Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area during the November Sandhill crane migration. The 2014 cranes were spectacular, but 2015 hasn't brought the highly concentrated numbers in yet. In 2014 there were estimated 40k birds. Music is by Ludovico Einaudi - Crane Dance
