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.

LF1 is proving to be a very efficient predator. It looks like she almost certainly has one more kill, and possibly two. She spent over 15 hours at points 188 and 189, indicating that something of note likely occured here.
