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.

Recently our remote cameras have been producing a wide variety of excellent wildlife photographs, such as the Great Horned Owl below, in addition to several NEW cougar photos. We rarely see coyotes (Canis latrans) on our cameras. Here are two coyote photos taken in April at Scenic Spring.
