California Condor Reintroduction Program

Today's speaker was Linda Price, Vermillion Cliffs National Monument Manager. She spoke with us about the California Condor Reintroduction Program. Condors were first released on the Arizona Strip in 1996 and since then, with the assistance of the Peregrine Fund’s Reintroduction program, their numbers have climbed to a total of 76 free flying birds in Arizona.

Linda Price graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Range Ecology and began her BLM career as a seasonal technician in Kingman Arizona in 1989. She came to the Arizona Strip in 1991 as a Range Conservationist and was assigned to the desert tortoise habitat along the Nevada border. She has served in various positions within the BLM range program until coming to the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument as the temporary manager in 2005. In 2008 she became the permanent Monument Manager. As Vermilion Cliffs National Monument Manger, Price oversees public lands issues on the 294,000-acre national monument which includes Paria Plateau, Paria Canyon, and Vermilion Cliffs. The Monument is internationally renowned for The Wave, a unique geologic feature in Coyote Buttes.
