We are conducting surveys, monitoring, and research on cougars (puma, mountain lion) on the Ladder Ranch in south-central New Mexico. Here, cougars are of particular interest given their effects on state-endangered desert bighorn sheep and other valuable big game. These projects are also resources for training and education, most notably through the Cougar Field Workshop.

About 7 and 1/2 hours were spent today bumping and bouncing over the rain-rutted roads to reach our remote digital cameras. Unfortunately, several of our cameras didn't function as well as we would have hoped. However, we did obtain a few pictures. As promised here are the highlights. The first one is of Zeke testing the sensitivity of the camera while trying to decide whether or not to chew on it.
