Stop the capture, torture, and killing of condors for the Yawar Festivals.

The Andean Condor population continues to decline in the wild, in part because their slow reproductive rate cannot keep up with their losses. Some experts estimate that there are only 1300 condors left in the wild, and without help they could disappear within 25 years. There is an active effort to breed and release these huge birds to prevent their continued decline. Thus it is absurdly irresponsible to continue to add to the condor's decline by allowing these festivals. The festival could continue by using a non-living symbol like a fake condor instead of a live bird to be injured or killed. When an endangered species continues to decline, every member of the breeding population is infinitely valuable to the survival of that species. This torture, injuring, and even killing of Andean Condors must be stopped immediately.
