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.

Here is a map of our female cougar's movements as of 2 March. She has rapidly traveled a few miles to the west after making a kill. As suspected the yellow-orange cluster of points on the east side of the map was indeed a kill. See the post above!
