My love of cougars blossomed almost two decades ago with my introduction to the magic desert of Big Bend National Park. There, I talked to people about their sightings of the mysterious cats and hunted for mountain lion sign, all to no avail. Then, after one of my trips, I stumbled on a magazine ad promoting a mountain lion expedition to study the big cats. Even though the trip was only weeks away, I got on; and my love for the mountain lion was born.
This blog, as well as the CougarZone (part of The Andyzone.com), is dedicated to the advocacy and conservation of these magnificent animals.
