Miracle released!

     After a whole month of chelation treatment for lead poisoning at Oakland Zoo, Condor 538 "Miracle", was finally released towards the end of June. After being trapped and tested with a lead score of 170 ug/dL (birds are treated if they have over 35 ug/dL), she was admitted to the Oakland Zoo for chelation treatment.  Because her lead score was so high, it took a long time for it to drop low enough for her to be released back to the wild.
     Thank you Oakland Zoo for all the incredible work you did for helping Miracle get healthy again!!
