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 the most recent map generated for our collared female cougar. She has returned to the farm area near the Ladder headquarters. It looks like she may have another kill. In the immediate vicinity of her last location (the red star) we have GPS fixes covering at least 24 hours. Hopefully, we'll be able to do a ground investigation soon.
