Two Pere David's fawns born at Edinburgh Zoo on the 19 April. Once extinct in the wild they have been rescued from oblivion and re-introduced into their native China. Named after the 19th century naturalist Abbe Armand David, their numbers declined rapidly in the 19th and 20th centuries due to over-hunting. Several species scattered around European zoos were brought together at Woburn Abbey, by the Duke of Bedford who began a carefully managed breeding programme. Photo by Chris Bacon/PA
