The San Diego Zoo received its first fishing cats in 1961. Today we have a pair of fishing cats that can be seen on Tiger Trail.
Because fishing cats depend on water in their habitat, this is likely to cause trouble for future generations. These wetland areas are affected by pollution, over-farming, and even drainage issues. Fishing cats do not need to live near water but always choose to make their homes there. This choice may not be the best but appears to be what the fishing cat prefers.
Choosing to purchase products that support better use of the land is a great way to help the fishing cat and other species that live in wetland habitats. Reducing pollution and using eco-friendly fishing and agricultural ideas may ensure that the fishing cat always has its favorite place to call home, right on the bank of a wetland area.
