I have recently read an article about fishing cat survey in Cambodia, which led me to this symposium final presentation, detailing the last information available about this little known felid from Asia. The fishing cat is known to live in coastland and inland wetlands. It is found in the Ganga delta, the Terai Arc in the Indian subcontinent. More research is needed in Vietnam and Java to review its presence. Wetland should be urgently protected to ensure this felid correct habitat protection. I would no have expected conflict with humans, but some of the presentation stress on intense conflict in West Bengal for instance. http://www.wild-cat.org/viverrinus/infos/FCWG2016_1stInt_FishingCat_Conservation_Symposium_proceedings.pdf

There is an estimated 106 tigers in the Sundarbans, less than the 440 estimated in 2004 based on plug mark technique: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jul/27/only-100-tigers-left-in-bangladeshs-famed-sundarbans-forest?CMP=share_btn_fb
