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.

We didn't receive any data from LF1's collar on the 14th. The data we received this morning contained three dubious data points (unlabeled in blue) and one reliable data point, number 575. If we could only get one reliable data point, surely this one is the most interesting. Point 575 is located precisely in the spot where we suspect LF1 has a den of cubs. Perhaps the data was not sent on the 14th because she was in the den during the satellite uplink window.
