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.

Our collar seems to be operating as we had hoped. Above is our first map for this tom. The little data we have on this cougar shows that his movements overlap the home range of our collared female in the vicinity of Bell Mountain.
