You are not thinking in the right order of magnitude.  The
historical/prehistorical lower limit for a group to exist long term is
between 700 and 5000.


That lower limit had a different set of assumptions of course.  We would
have at our disposal much more intensive genetic screening and embryo
selection.  Under those circumstances, I can imagine very little in the
reproductive department would be left to chance.
