The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), previously established as the Conservation and Research Center in 1973, is a research and training leader in veterinary medicine, reproductive physiology and conservation biology.

SCBI breeding advances for the scimitar-horned oryx, a desert antelope, contribute to a conservation model to avert the species' exhibit.

Captions from photos on marker:
The SCBI property had once been a U.S. Army Remount Station, providing horses and mules to the U.S. Cavalry.

SCBI headquarters in Front Royal, Virginia has 3,200 acres of rolling hills where endangered species are studied and bred.
