A tuk tuk driver by trade, Maduranga fell in love with the work when he helped transport camera traps across a waterway via rickety a boat one fine morning in 2014. He ended up staying and setting up cameras, and has been with the project ever since. Bringing in practical field skills he gained during his time with the Sri Lanka Special Task Force, he is an invaluable field assistant, and has saved Anya from many a field accident.
He has even successfully turned his daughter into an avid fishing cat lover, as she is often heard educating her friends and family about the species!
