Hi there,

Today we're launching a new, and hugely important Zooniverse project: Condor 
 The are only around 200 California Condors living in the wild and they are in 
serious danger from lead poisoning, which they get by eating carcasses shot 
with lead bullets. Getting a better idea of how they interact and socialise is 
crucial to ongoing conservation efforts.

Using camera traps, ecologists in the US have been observing them in the wild. 
However the sheer volume of images is now overwhelming. Starting today we need 
your help to look through the first set of data: 264,000 images of condors 
eating, socialising, and nesting. Ecologists need everyone's help to identify 
the individual birds from their numbered tags. Your efforts on this project 
will help preserve an endangered species - and we think that's really special.

Get involved right now at<>
