So we had a field meeting with @savefishingcat @smallwildcats and @sagarfishingcat at our study site this morning. Turns out that @ashanthudugala and @anyaratnayaka both realized that they missed out on the #worldpangolinday celebrations! What is it that they say about great minds... 🤓 @savepangolinsofficial @pangolinsg @smallcatadvocacy

Happy #world Pangolin Day! We know we are a day late, but better late than never right!
Here’s a pangolin captured on #trailcam by our project @urbanfishingcat ・・・
Our secret study site finally paid off when this tank lumbered past! The Indian Pangolin, Manis crassicaudata, is listed as #Endangered in the #IUCNRedList. There is almost nothing known about the species in any of its range countries. All pangolin species are heavily trafficked worldwide for their scales and meat. @savepangolinsofficial @iucnpangolinsg

This morning we came across the most gorgeous set of Fishing Cat pugs. Seeing little hints of them is what makes not seeing the cats in the wild, worth it. It’s their way of saying hello ❤️

Fishing cats are INCREDIBLE swimmers, and will often plunge head first into steams, lakes and ponds to catch their slippery prey!

Wetlands are prized lands, and not wastelands. They provide a wide range of ecosystem services. You just need to pay attention to them learn what they have to offer! .

Happy World Wetland Day! As governments mould wetland conservation laws to suit the needs of 'development' initatives and real estate, let's hope for a better future for wetlands, one of our most valuable ecosystems.

Happy World Wetlands Day fishing cat lovers! Did you know that the Sri Lanka Land Reclamation and Development Corporation will be restoring 15 urban wetlands in Colombo to make the city a Wetland City. Public will be given limited access to these wetlands once complete, to learn about and enjoy these amazing habitats. Right now two are complete, and are open to the public - the Diyasaru Park and the Baddegana Wetland Park.

The featured picture is our AMAZING study site - Diyasaru Park - which is chock-full of wildlife!

A happy story and some cute kittens from our friends at @urbanfishingcat
・・・
Yesterday we got a call about two fishing cat kittens that were found in a garden in Battaramulla. The kits were walking through a home garden with mum, when the owners of the house came outside with a cup of tea. Shocked, mum and the kits ran in two different directions.
.
The lost kits were retrieved by the owners of the house and taken to the Department of Wildlife Conservation (DWC), where they spent the day after being looked over for injuries.
.
Later on in the evening they were taken back to the location where they were found, and left in the trap cage to make sure they were safe from a very large water monitor that was eyeballing them. At around 7.30pm, the kits growling stomachs prompted them to start chirping for mum, and much to the delight of the home owner, mum started quacking back!
.
Carefully, the DWC handlers opened the trap door and backed away. The kittens slowly slunk out of the cage, looking left and right, until they spotted their mother sitting in some brush, before dashing towards her.
.
This is such a great story! Well done to all parties involved in reuniting this fishing cat family!
