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.

Now that we have a collar on one cougar, we know for certain when we are getting a photograph of other individuals. Our collared cougar recently moved north along the Rio Grande. We had thought that it would have passed by our remote camera set in a narrow passage along the river. We checked the camera today to find ANOTHER large male cougar passing along the same spot.
