History was made when the Endangered fishing cat was caught on camera trap recently in Cambodia!

This is the first evidence of the existence of fishing cats in the country in over a decade.

With support from the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) through our reinvestment in the Indo-Burma biodiversity hotspot, the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Centre for Biodiversity Conservation (RUPP-CBC) is identifying priority sites and conservation actions for the fishing cat in Cambodia.
