The Full Story

 ABOUT US

Worldwide biodiversity experiences an accelerating decline that threatens the whole ecosystems. The livelihoods of people from surrounding areas are at risk too, as they depend on the functioning of a healthy nature.

 

However, there is still the time to act and to make a change.

Wildlife translocations for reintroduction are conservation actions that help restore what have been lost.

Mission

“Capture & Release – Capture Images, Release Species” is a non-profit association that helps ambitious conservation projects achieve their goals of successful wildlife reintroductions via:

  • Documentary film production and media support;

  • Veterinary consulting and feasibility analysis.

Vision

With the help of high-quality images we can act and support wildlife reintroduction projects.
Communication is one of the main things when it comes to raise awareness among local people and prove the benefits of healthy wildlife management.
