(Best Syndication News) - A study from the University of California, Santa Cruz, found that condors in the state are being exposed to detrimental lead levels, which is slowing the repopulation of the endangered species. On June 25, the researchers published their study results in the online early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

The primary source for lead exposure comes from lead found in ammunition. The researchers determined this based on a “fingerprinting” technique of isotopes. Additionally, they studied the lead levels in the birds’ feathers to understand the history of lead exposure.
