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 seems to have returned to his usual haunts. So far we have not heard that his westward movements following the application of the scent posts was a satellite error. Although he has returned to the river, the long-term effects of repeated scent marking remain to be seen.
