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.

Since LF1 was recollared she has moved back into our camera grid, as shown above. We are hopeful that we may detect her and her cubs soon. Our objective is to calibrate remote camera detection rates with GPS movement data in order enhance the usefullness of remote cameras as a reliable survey tool.
