Fishing Cat records in Cambodia are scarce. In 2015 our team discovered Fishing Cats at two sites with no previous records in southwest Cambodia: Peam Krosaop (PKWS) and Ream (RNP). Shortly after, we were informed of the killing of a Fishing Cat in retaliation for raiding nets at PKWS. Our project aims to describe the PKWS population and implement conservation actions to ensure its survival.
