Image: Ashwin Kadiyala // With #mangrove #forests fast disappearing from south India, the fragile mangrove #ecosystem of the Krishna #Wildlife Sanctuary is accepted as a rare and valuable asset in need of preservation, which is also home to the elusive fishing cat. Malaika Vaz traces how a rigorous community effort led by Appa Rao Allarpathi overcame the onslaught of the unsustainable shrimp #industry to restore a fragile ecosystem in Andhra Pradesh's Krishna Wildlife Sanctuary.

We at Fishing Cat Conservancy are are finding presence/absence of fishing cats in unprotected mangroves in Andhra Pradesh. We harness knowledge of local communities to gather evidence of fishing cats. The greatest example is this camera is set by Moshi from Chenchu tribe.
The major threat for fishing cats is habitat loss and degradation. As global demand for fish and shrimp is increasing, the mangrove habitat is being destroyed for fish and shrimp farms. Also there are no corridors for fishing cats living in unprotected and isolated patches of mangroves.
We believe local communities must get benefited from conservation so they take pride in protecting their backyard wildlife. We are also planning to buy fish and shrimp farms and restore them back to mangroves. But we need help to accomplish this.
