Two orphaned baby beavers have been released back into the wild.Wildlife workers transported the beavers in containers to a pond in Washington. The workers took them in more than a year ago.

The beavers weighed less than a pound each, and had to learn everything from how to swim to how to eat. Now they are ready to be on their own.

Crews have left them plenty of food, just in case they need it.

The workers think the beavers are a male and female, and they hope they'll start a family.
