After hearing almost six hours of testimony, commissioners voted 3-1 to approve the application of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for a permit to capture condors for field studies and captive breeding. A public comment period for a federal permit, which also is re- quired, will expire June 23. In tile study phase of the pro- gram, as many as 10 condors will be captured during the first year, titled wilh solar-powered radio' telemetry devises, released and followed from the ground and Ihe air. Additional birds witt bc radio- ~agged in subsequent years. In the captive breeding part of ~hc program, aline condors will be taken for mating over a period of several years - four pairs plus a male for a male condor ah'cady in captivily. Progeny of the captive- bred birds will be released isle Ihe wild. The multimillion-dollar pro- grana is scheduled to continue until the wild population has reached a stable, self-sustaiuing ~.'ondilion. A USFWS spokesman said thai Ihe agency expects to caplure the firsl two or three condors lifts fall. I.ield studies already are under way in lhe condors' last stronghold in lhe rugged mountains around tile southern end of tile San Joaqtfin Valley. Ihus far, Congress has ap- proprialed $1,167,000. for lhe pro- gralll. Meanwhile, ongoing manage- ment and protection efforts for the cndangcred bird will continue.
