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 last two downloads from LF1's collar have contained very little usable data. The 5 September download contained no usable points. Today's download contained about 6 of the possible 12 locations. LF1 remains relatively close to the 517 point. As you can see from the map above her movements over the last week are still pretty much within the small area oulined in the map below. Point 564 is right back at the rock outcrop where Kate Thibault found the likely den.
