Title: CALIFORNIA CONDOR
Movie ID: VT3879
Movie Number: 3879
Description: When this Audubon special program was filmed, there were only six California condors living in the wild--now there are none. In captivity, however, over twenty survive. Audubon finds this magnificent creature in its natural habitat--flying high over the Santa Ynez Mountains of southern California. With a ten-foot wingspan, the condor can reach altitudes of 15,000 feet and speeds of up to 80 miles per hour. It is rightfully named nature's finest flying machine. Breathtaking footage of the great birds, never before captured on film, will give you an appreciation of their magnificence and a sadness of their demise. The graceful coutrship flight and a rare scene with all six condors airborne together are two of this film's most fascinating moments. It in no wonder that scientists and conservationists are struggling to someday re-introduce California condors to the skies they once ruled.

"LSSU's size is perfect. I see familiar faces every day. There is a security and comfort in that. The professors are wonderful, and there is a lot of interaction in the smaller classes. The level of attention students get is the same as at a small private college, but at a great price." [ more ]
