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.

Using data from sightings and remote camera photos, Megan has mapped what we know of LF2's home range. 4 of the 6 locations are from a single camera on Animas Creek. This camera loacation has photographed all of our collared cougars as well as at least one uncollared cougar. It seems to be a real hotspot of cougar activity.
