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 cougar has traveled some 18 miles since she left the javelina kill a few days ago. The map above shows her total movements since she was collared. The numbers indicate the sequential order in which the GPS fixes were taken.
