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.

The top photo of an uncollared lion was taken in Tank Canyon along a wash lined with Cottonwood trees. Tank Canyon is along the southern limits of LF-1's home range. We've also been getting a lot of non-target photos including this mother Black Bear with 2 cubs that are a little hard to see. This photo was taken by a another camera in Tank Canyon on a small overflow of water from a nearby tank which is one of the only permanent water sources in the area.
