Worldwide biodiversity experiences an accelerating decline that threatens the whole ecosystems. Human livelihoods are at risk too, as we all depend on the functioning of a healthy nature.


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

Wildlife reintroductions are conservation actions that help restore what have been lost. It's allowing nature to heal itself.

Together, let's rewild the planet!

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

We unite art and science in a powerful tool on a mission to restore the ecosystems and wildlife populations.


A world in which biodiversity returns to habitats from which it disappeared, and the ecosystems thrive, benefitting local communities and their sustainable development.
