Meet the endangered baby condor being hand-reared at a UK conservation centre.

The 15-week-old is has been incubated as part of a project to repopulate the species, which has seen a huge decline in recent years.

She has a seven-foot wingspan, weighs 7kg and could live until the age of 80.

Bird specialists at the International Centre for Birds of Prey in Newent, Glamorgan, who live with the as yet unnamed vulture hope she will reproduce a family that could be released back into the wild in South America.
