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.

Dry land cougar hunting is not for the faint of heart, and cougar research is not for the pessimist. On the fourth and final day spirits were still high. Here Mike is taking a coffee break, after several hours in the saddle, while we talk about the exploits of Teddy Roosevelt and Ben Lilly.
