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 have recorded several photographs of an uncollared male at this camera in the past. Likely, most of the photographs are of the same individual. The individual in the photograph above, plus LM1, LF1, and the uncollared female photographed on 22 and 23 November make at least 4 adult puma currently frequenting the camera grid - about 64 sq Km.
