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.

We obtained several exciting photos yesterday while checking the remote cameras. One of the more spectacular is this photo of a Great Horned Owl just after it had taken a bath in Walnut Spring. We also obtained some additional cougar photos. More photos to follow as well as an update on our collared cougar.
