Yuroks Reach Out To California Condors

There are still several steps to take, but California's North Coast could be home to California condors once again. 

The Yurok tribe recently signed agreements with state and federal agencies that might lead to releases of the big birds on Yurok ancestral land.  Condors did live there a very long time ago, before modern pesticides forced the birds to the edge of extinction. 

We talk with tribal reps about what happens next.
