Under the direction of Clay Nielsen and Michelle LaRue, the Cougar Network continues to conduct research on the phenomena of cougars recolonizing areas of midwestern North America by tracking verifiable confirmations of individuals and combining those data with GIS and spatial and population viability analysis to understand cougar potential in the 21st century.
The Cougar Network does not support outside scientists wishing to do cougar research. Rather, we conduct our own research.
The Cougar Network is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status, so all financial contributions are tax deductible. The Network is currently pursuing grants for a number of research projects and is always grateful for individual contributions.
