Got to tie those cameras up high to avoid the wetland’s rising water levels, as it soaks up rain water from the surrounding area. #urbanfishingcatproject #urbanwetlands #trailcamera #covertilluminator #cameratrap #srilanka

I had such an amazing time talking to the keepers and volunteers at the @sanfranciscozoo today! This is the first I’ve spoken at a zoo, and they made me feel so at home! To top it all off, their fishing cat, Goldfish, put on a little show for us and caught a fish for lunch! #urbanfishingcatproject #conservation #awareness #wildlife #fishingcat #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscozoo

What an incredible day - listening to greatest wildlife conservationists and their efforts to save wildlife. They shared stories about the numerous challenges they face at different levels, working with the local people and bringing a change in wildlife habitat. #janegoodall #wildlifeconservation #lionproject #iaindouglashamilton #elephants #cheetah #urbanfishingcatproject #wildnetorg #ewasolions #wildlifeconservationnetwork #wcnexpo17 @ewasolions @savetheelephants @oceanswellorg @wildnetorg #conservation #savewildlife

Proud to be one of the two Sri Lankan women conservationists at the Wildlife Conservation Network’s Wildlife Conservation Expo 2017. We both work with mammals that love water (@ashadevos ‘s blue whales don’t really have a choice though), and we both love chocolate chip cookies! .
If you are in the San Francisco area, drop by on Saturday the 14th at the Mission Bay Conference Center to hear about our amazing species! .

And finally Guarani the Geoffroy’s cat. Tiny compared to her companions, she was a bit shy to come out at first, but once she was comfortable, all she wanted to do was rub against Rob and try her best to get off the table to go explore! The small wild cats were brought by the Wild Cat Education and Conservation Center (wildcatfund.org). #urbanfishingcatproject #smallwildcats #wildcats #conservation #awareness #geoffroyscat #ambassadoranimal

You’ve read about him on our blog (thanks Dylan), and you’ve wished him happy birthday. Here is the infamous Bandhu! The fishing cat I’ve been dying to meet, finally eating fish in front of me. His gorgeous smell clung to every surface of the room. A thick pungent scent that only a true fishing cat lover could appreciate - and there were quite a few today! Bandhu is the ONLY fishing cat ambassador that actually travels to venues to educate kids and adults about his species. He is also of Sri Lankan origin, so we should all be very proud 😊 The small wild cats were brought by the Wild Cat Education and Conservation Center (wildcatfund.org). #urbanfishingcatproject #smallwildcats #wildcats #conservation #awareness #fishingcat #ambassadoranimal

Hi Chachi! What a gorgeous little man! He is an ocelot, and one of the three ambassador small wild cats who came out on stage today.

While Maduranga mans the camera traps, I've been travelling a lot over the past two months, talking about our amazing urban fishing cats. To add to the itinerary, I've been invited as Dr. Jim Sanderson's guest speaker at the @wildnetorg Wildlife Conservation Expo 2017, held in San Francisco on 14 October 2017. The small wild cat talk (and fishing cat talk) will be on at 4.00pm at the Mission Bay Conference Centre.
.
You can also come meet us at our Expo table after the event for some awesome merchandise!

When the fishing cat you've been trying to capture for three months tells you what's he really thinks about you 💔☹️💔#WildlifePhotoFail #urbanfishingcatproject #srilanka #fishingcat #conservation #urbanwildlife #urbanwetland

The urban fishing cat and the @urban_caracal finally meet! Technically they met a week ago, but they remembered to take the picture on the last day 🙈 #urbanfishingcatproject #urbancaracalproject #urbancarnivores

The most amazing surprise ever! Got to the @portlympnepark Bear Lodge for a special dinner organized by @theaspinallfoundation for all of us, and was met by Neville and his team wearing our project tshirt! What an epic way to end this fantastic small cat summit! I definitely felt the love! #urbanfishingcatproject #fishingcat #conservation #aspinallfoundation #portlympnereserve #england

Mizuchi makes his debut at the First International Small Cat Summit. What a special little man he is 😸 He plays a vital role in urban fishing cat and urban wildlife conservation and awareness. #urbanfishingcatproject #conservation #fishingcat #awareness #koicarp #fishing #urbanwildlife

Freezing our whiskers off waiting for the bus to get to @theaspinallfoundation Port Lympne Animal Park. Did I mention that it was cold? #urbanfishingcatproject #smallcatsummit #london #conservation

Waiting for 20 other small cat conservationists from around the world arrive in London can be pretty boring. And as you can see, the present company is rather anti social 🙄😪 at least I have a coffee 😊 #urbanfishingcatproject #antisocialconservationists #london

Maduranga rescuing our stranded camera traps just in the knick of time. 30 minutes too late and they would have drowned. Gotta love the monsoon! #urbanfishingcatproject #srilanka #monsoon #conservation #urbanwetland #fishingcat

Today we set up our camera traps. Maduranga and our part time volunteer field assistant @tharindu.97 were on the job. They also came across a nice sample of fishing cat scat! 😍 #urbanfishingcatproject #fishingcat #conservation #srilanka #wildlife #urbanwildlife
