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.

Below are some of the exciting recent photographs we have gotten from our remote cameras. Flooding during the summer destroyed several of our cameras; but, generous donations enabled us to replace those cameras and thus continue with our cougar detection probability study. However, as you can see from the photos below, we are able to gather data on many species besides cougars with these cameras.
