Background information and definitions
The aim of captive breeding is usually to release captive-bred animals back to natural habitats, either to original sites once conditions are suitable, to reintroduce species to sites that were occupied in the past or to introduce species to new sites. For studies that released hand-reared bats into the wild, see ‘Rehabilitate injured/orphaned bats to maintain wild bat populations’.
