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.

We received a pleasant surprise yesterday when a download from LM1's collar showed up in my e-mail. We had not received any data from LM1 in six weeks, since the 11th of August. We received two good locations which appear in the middle of LM1's home range. I've included the three locations from 11 August along with these two data points received on the 25th and 27th of September. The red circle on the left side of the map indicates the location of LF1's suspected den site.
