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.

Due to some software issues I have been late in mapping LF1 over the last 10 days. Here is the latest download as of 30 August, 2008. It still appears that LF1 could have a litter of cubs at the 517 site. Although she has made kills up to 4 Km away from the suspected den site, she has returned to it (or very near to it according to the coordinates) at least 4 times since the 12th of August. She has also made at least four kills since that time.
