Two endangered female California condors have been transferred from the U.S. to Mexico City’s Chapultepec Zoo, Nov. 10, 2014, for a new breeding-in-captivity program. A U.S. Embassy statement says the zoo will begin raising the birds for eventual release into the wild. The goal is for Mexico to take over all aspects of breeding and reintroduction in the country.
