“CAT in WATER” is a multimedia expedition to track and document the elusive fishing cat, of which only about 10,000 remain in the world. This cat has been little documented in the wild, despite living close to villages. Biologists recently discovered a new population in Thailand, but these cats are mysteriously vanishing.
We embark on an in-depth reporting project to highlight the untold natural history, threats and unusual conservation potential of this endangered cat. Our goal is to collect the media assets for an interactive multimedia experience to share with you the life of the fishing cat, including videos. So far, National Geographic Magazine has supplied us with a letter of interest, and we’ve contacted sources. Now we are in Thailand documenting our adventure.
