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 first collared cougar, AM1, is back to his usual haunts, patroling the salt-cedar thickets of the middle Rio Grande. It looks like he may have made a kill or scavenged something last week as indicated by the cluster of points on the west side of the river. Hopefully, we'll be able to ground check this soon.
