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.

To our considerable relief, the collar is functioning as it should. Here is a map of the cougar's movements between the 19th and the 29th of this month. The green star indicates the location where she was collared and the red star indicates where she was last located. There is likely a kill located within that cluster of red dots to the northwest of the green star.
