Examples of condor in a Sentence

  2. Jeff Corwin:

    It's not all that different to the American California condors. You know, the California condor just a few decades ago was reduced to being nearly extinct in the wild. Now [there are] around 500-plus wild condors, but it's a highly managed population. It requires a lot of micromanagement to ensure that they survive in the wild, and, this will likely be the same in Australia … because Australia is the poster child as the Tasmanian devil is the poster child for incredible natural wonder and shocking environmental catastrophe.

  3. Peter Altmaier:

    Condor is a profitable company and therefore our decision was based on economic factors, not on political criteria.
