PHOENIX — U.S. Sen. John McCain plans a visit to Grand Canyon National
Park to highlight efforts to protect and preserve the endangered condor.
McCain’s office said the senator will be in Arizona on Friday, joined by
representatives from the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, the National Park Service and others.
McCain planned to highlight voluntary programs in Arizona and Utah that
incentivize use of non-lead ammunition in hunting rifles after a string of
recent condor deaths that have been tied to lead poisoning.
The senator also planned to meet with members of the Flagstaff Chamber of
Commerce during his visit.
