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 are two photos of LM1 from December. You can see in the top photo that he has a bit of belly fat. This cougar is in great shape. We'll be working to have him recollared in the next couple of months.
