> Hi there,
> Today we're launching a new, and hugely important Zooniverse project: Condor 
> Watch. 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
