Coming Home: Back to the Wild
Europe’s rarest and most reclusive animals had once all but disappeared from Central Europe, but lynx, minks, pond turtles, and ground squirrels are being reintroduced to their old habitats. Once the animals are released, they are rarely seen again. This film accompanies them on their journey to see how they survive in their new home, and discover the challenges they face to reclaim their lost territories.
With specialised camera traps and endless patience, the filmmakers captured intimate moments in the lives of these elusive animals. The film shows the success of reintroduction but also that the animals’ survival relies on intact and protected ecosystems.
