Vancouver Island MarmotToronto ZooThe Vancouver Island Marmot is critically endangered, and has been taken in for captive breeding at the Toronto Zoo. The Marmots live in a habitat in which they are comfortable. The Marmot is endangered because of water pollution around Vancouver Island. Scientists are breeding these Marmots with each other, and have had huge success in total now having 442 pups.

National ZooScimitar-horned OryxThe Oryx was saved from extinction due to overhunting, and was captive-bred at the National Zoo. Their priorities are as follows: 1) ensure reproduction between valuable, but behaviorally incompatible pairs2) eliminate the risks of animal transport3) provide a means to exchange genes among populations. The National Zoo is now releasing these Oryx's into the wild, and they are no longer as endangered as they were.
