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 were surprised to receive a second download in a row from LM1's collar. Previously it had been 6 weeks since we had received any data from his collar and we had assumed that the collar was permanently damaged. We only received 2 of a possible 12 locations from the previous days which is not enough for us to identify prey cache sites. However, we can at least follow his movements to some degree.
