Condor Project a Bust?

Latest word from the American Ornithological Union--condors may never be fully self-sustaining in the wild (see story here). Is it worth $5 million a year to keep them around? This question has been asked for decades, but with the birds so dependent on humans to keep them free from lead, the feasibility of this project keeps coming back up.

If we could really do what is necessary and stop lead shot from being used then yes it would be worth it because it might actually work. As someone who might actually see one of these birds flying free, I say that it is worth it. It's heart-breaking that we are only willing to do the job half-way.
