the degradation degree of heterozygosity as a consequence of inbreeding. Genetic variation and the degree of heterozygosity of natural wildlife population are higher
than those of inbred population (in captive breeding) of the same species.Some inbreeding depression in small closed population as well as in captive animals are described
in this paper, e.g. viability depression, fecundity depression, sex ratio depression. To enhance the survival of a species in captive breeding, some strategies are suggested to be
carried out, e.g. to avoid starting a population with animals which are already inbred, to prevent starting a population with related animals.
