Good news! Our colleague Rama Mishra Lamichane and her team recently collared a fishing cat in Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve in Nepal with a satellite collar. The aim of the collaring is to better understand the behavior of this elusive and endangered cat species, and to monitor conflicts with local fishpond owners. Eventually the team hopes to establish appropriate protection measures that would allow for a coexistence between fishing cats and local farmers. This study is supported by Leo Foundation.
