Andean Condor Conservation Project. Worker checking Andean condor (Vultur gryphus) eggs that are being incubated as part of the Andean Condor Conservation Project. The project, founded in 1991, aims to reintroduce Andean condors to the wild through captive breeding programs and nursing injured birds back to health. In the wild a mating pair of Andean Condors produces only a single offspring every other year, so these eggs are vital to the project's success. Photographed at the Buenos Aires Zoo, Argentina.
