Fishing cats are endangered, due to loss of habitat, their food source being over fishes and poaching. The Fishing cats habitat is made up of wetland in Asia.

Fishing cats use their webbed paws to catch fish in the water. 
This unique physical feature allows them to scoop out their pray while standing at the water’s edge or to dive in head first and swim after them... @fishingcatwg

Anya’s very tidy desktop this evening. This is the calm before the storm, as she organizes data from the three fishing cats we collared between 2013-2015, with @laurelserieys’s guidance. This is being done in parallel to a Movebank upload of Neak’s new data that was downloaded over the weekend.

We now remember why Anya took so long to do this. She sucks at numbers 🤦🏾‍♀️

Kla Trey: Cambodian Fishing Cat Project: Cambodia

Primary Investigator: 
Vanessa Herranz Muñoz

Fishing cat records in Cambodia are scarce. Until recently, the species had only been recorded once in 2003. In 2015, the first survey targeting fishing cat was conducted by the CBC which photo-captured individuals in Peam Krasop Wildlife Sanctuary (PKWS), one of the largest areas of mangrove in Southeast Asia. Following these findings, Vanessa established the Kla Trey: Cambodian Fishing Cat Project in 2016 in partnership with the CBC and comprising a team of graduates and students from the Centre’s MSc in Biodiversity Conservation Programme, the only one of its kind in the country. The Project seeks to study the newly discovered population in PKWS and implement conservation actions for fishing cat, other threatened species and the mangrove ecosystem as a whole. In 2015, Vanessa and Kla Trey’s Community Officer Sothearen Thi co-authored the Mekong Ecosystem Environmentally Sensitive Development Manual (MECODEM) which will inform community development measures that promote protection of fishing cats and this habitat. Research began in early 2017 and to date the project has photo-captured fishing cats at seven locations, conducted threat investigation interviews and awareness raising workshops at five villages (200+ participants) and established contact with all stakeholders. http://www.fishingcatcambodia.org/

During our February 2019 tour we were fortunate enough to have spend almost 4 hours of time with this kitten. If left undisturbed any wildlife will allow good photographic opportunities. Will share more images soon.

Another major component of the project involves promoting awareness among local people living in towns/villages near Fishing Cat habitats and positively engaging them in conservation efforts by capacity-building measures not only to monitor its populations but also to document any threats to their survival in unprotected/unclassified forest areas. http://eghats.org/conservation/fishing-cat/

Primary Investigator:
Giridhar Malla

With a childhood fascination for wildcats, Giridhar’s career choice as a wildlife biologist has now focused towards the small cat species of India. With his MBZ Species Conservation Grant in June 2016 for the project “Conservation of fishing cat and its mangrove habitats in Godavari mangroves, India”, he tracks 15 Fishing Cats daily, in one of the main creeks in the Coringa Wildlife Sanctuary. Moreover, with the support of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology he has now initiated a pilot project on the vocalization of Fishing Cats. He believes this research could lead to understanding different Fishing Cat vocalizations for different behavior aspects such as territorial defence or breeding calls in the mangrove habitat. Giridhar is also focused on creating awareness among the local school children and communities around the mangrove forests of Godavari Estuary through an initiative called “Children for Fishing Cats” in the hopes of changing attitudes towards this threatened cat.

Fishing cats becoming the subject of road kills have sadly become common place in their range countries. This stems from urbanization and the development of road networks eating into their habitats. In Sri Lanka, in the space of 24 months, approximately 200 fishing cats were reported as road kill. Imagine how many more have remained as unreported cases? .

The rise of aquaculture has resulted in the dramatic transformation of many of the wetland habitats that are home to fishing cats. Often converted into what may seem like more economically productive uses of the land, the growing global demand for shrimp has been identified as a direct impact to the health of fishing cat populations. Important conservation work from Thailand's Passanan 'Namfon' Cutter was at the forefront of exposing the ill effects of shrimp farming in relation to fishing cats. 
If you want to be a part of the solution the next time you shop for shrimp look for sustainably and responsibly sourced shrimp rather than opting for the cheapest option. Online resources such as www.seafoodwatch.org and www.sustainableseafood.org are good tools to be utilized to make better informed decisions.
