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.

Temperatures have been dropping into the teens here at night and the water in the drinkers has been freezing. Here you can see two mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) making a disappointing discovery as they find their water frozen.
