Tiasa Adhya

Tiasa started The Fishing Cat Project in 2010 to conserve this elusive cat in the human dominated Howrah district in West Bengal and to mainstream its conservation. To address the pervasive lack of awareness about the endangered felid, she, together with her team focused their campaign to sensitize locals about the cat’s globally threatened status and about the legal implications of killing it. For this, they distributed leaflets and brochures, displayed posters and banners, used aural and visual media and held a series of group discussions. The team tried to instil a sense of pride in conserving their State animal which is threatened due to ongoing habitat destruction.
