From Wyoming Public Media's Natural Resources & Energy: Listen to the Story
"A California condor recently flew from Arizona to Wyoming but died shortly after arriving. California condors are an endangered species, and the bird, which was being tracked, was taken in for a necropsy by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
After the cause of death was determined, the University of Wyoming Museum of Vertebrates was given the body for research and education. London Homer-Wambeam sat down with the museum's curator and collections manager Elizabeth Wommack to find out more about the condor."
