Puma Tracker

Select a mountain lion from the list on the right. Use the time slider above the map to animate the track. What kind of patterns do you see? Why are some home ranges larger than others? Explore the different tracks and see what kind of questions you come up with. That’s what we do!  * Note that there are many more mountain lions without collars on them, than are those with collars.

Also, below we have provided a map with the home range center of each collared animal to help you with determining which animals might be where.  This is just a rough guide, but it is helpful nonetheless.  Note also that most of these animals are no longer actively collared (or alive) but where they did travel should be representative of where other animals are likely to travel.
