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.

Lambing season has begun here on the Armendaris. The first lamb was seen in early January. Two were seen together in early February and this photo of 5 was taken just this week (arrows indicate the little buggers); you can see one of our collared ewes in the foreground. A very wet summer and a relatively wet fall may make this a very productive year for the sheep herd.
