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 female cougar has been collared for 4 weeks as of today. The map above shows the GPS locations we have recieved for her during that period. The red crosses on the map indicate the kill sites we have located so far. We're starting to get a nice picture of her home range.
