Rusty-Spotted Cat

Rusty-spotted cats are “Near Threatened” as less than 10,000 are estimated to remain with no subpopulations with more than 1,000 breeding individuals.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species, rusty-spotted cats are classified as “Near Threatened” and have an estimated combined population total in India and Sri Lanka of under 10,000 mature individuals. There is no subpopulation with more than 1,000 breeding individuals.

The declining trend is due to habitat loss characterized by a decline in natural forest environments and an increase in agricultural areas.
