    There are several noted success stories regarding the re-release of species into the wild.

    The Ithumba Team of Kenya has had successs (documented in the attached video) releasing young elephants back into the wild. The African Elephant has been on endangered species lists for years, thanks largely to poaching, and with every young elephant released due to their efforts, the species gets one more foot in the door of survival.

    A less common story would be that of the Piping Plover, a tiny shore bird whose numbers dwindled to a mere 20-30 mating pairs. That number has increased to 70 since the 1980s, and recently, three eggs were discovered near Lake Michigan, hatched, and successfully released into the wild.
