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 there are a number of new photos from our remote cameras. We detected LM1 at least twice as well as an uncollared cougar, likely a male. Other notable photos include a black-backed side-striped color variant of the hooded skunk and a house cat that has wandered very far from its house.
