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.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately depending on your perspective) no sign of cougar was found on the hike. However, it was still a productive effort. Here are a few hightlights beginning with the view from the top of the Fra Cristobal range where the trip began. Elephant Butte resevoir can be seen to the southwest.
