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.

At the end of May LF1 was "captured" on one of our remote cameras near one of her prey cache sites. In the hotter dryer regions of the southwest cougar often concentrate their predation around water sources as this is where the prey is also concentrated.
