1 Maintaining Biodiversity
1.1 Economic reasons to keep maintaining biodiversity
1.1.1 tourism
1.1.2 medicine
1.1.3 food/agriculture
1.1.4 raw materials
1.1.5 future uses
1.1.6 maintain genetic diversity
1.1.7 biological controls
1.2 helps maintain stability
1.2.1 all organisms interact in many ways, and if one species disappears this can affect whole community
2 Endangered species
2.1 Reasons
2.1.1 Deforestation
2.1.1.1 loss of habitats
2.1.2 Hunting
2.1.3 Profit
2.1.3.1 animals killed for their tusks/fur

3.4 Captive breeding programme
3.4.1 each zoo tried to breed and build up a herd
3.4.2 care taken to not breed closely related animals together
3.4.2.1 maintain genetic diversity
3.5 provide safe habitat for oryxes so that they could eventually return to wild
3.6 locals encouraged to take part in protection
3.6.1 some employed to look after reserves
3.7 2000, population had grown to more than 120
