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.

The ram eventually joined this groups of 3 other rams, 2 ewes, including one of our radio collared ewes, #23, and #23's lamb of this year. Number 23 can be seen just at the top of the mesquite branches to the left.
