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.

This next photo was taken on the 18th of May in the north central portion of the Fra Cristobal range. Most of our cougar photos are taken between dusk and dawn. This photo is unusual in that it was taken at 8:25am, long after the sun had risen.
