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.

LF1 (pink dots) and LM2 (blue dots) have each had a kill in the last week, less than 1 mile from the other. After leaving their kills they both traveled west to the same area on the same day. Unfortunately, LM2's collar has not been sending us much data. We are lacking 10 days of locality data for him from 20 July to 29 July.
