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.

The habitat our collared cougar has chosen to remain in consists of cottonwood and willow forest in a matrix of dense salt cedar and willow sapplings. We found our cougar's kill in the dense stand of young trees in the back ground of the sappling photo.
