ScienceDaily (Oct. 29, 2009) — The population of brown bears (Ursus arctos) in France is now so small that the species might become extinct in the near future. However, there is new hope in the form of new research published October 28 in PLoS One, which suggests that relocating new bears doesn't just boost the population size but can also reverse some of the causes of the population decline.

So it turns out that in order to sustain a population it is necessary to have females and to let the kids live. I didn't know that.
