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.

After a few moments of nervous vigilance, these 3 began walking off the hill. We were sure they had detected us as they kept their ears pointed in our direction. We waited to see where they would go as they filed off the hill. Imagine our surprise when they came towards us.
