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.

Our Cuddeback remote camera photographed several species as they passed along this trail near the Rio Grande. Here we see a bobcat (Lynx rufus) as it walks down the path in the late afternoon, a striped skunk (Mephitis mephitis) passing by just after dark, and the south end of a north bound javelina (Tayassu tajacu).
