Title: Avoid or restrict areas used by California Condors
Text: "Special Status Species - California Condor: California Condor Potential Habitat Throughout planning area: Avoidance or use restrictions may be placed on portions on areas known or suspected to be used by condors. Application of appropriate measures will depend on whether the action is temporary or permanent, and whether it occurs within or outside potential habitat. A temporary action is completed prior to the following important season of use, leaving for habitat functionality. A permanent action continues for more than one season of habitat use, and/or causes a loss of condor habitat function or displaces condors through continued disturbance (i.e. creation of a permanent structure requiring repetitious maintenance or emits disruptive levels of noise)."
