Mountain Lion

Nebraska Game and Parks Tracks Mountain Lions

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission field staff recently started a four-year research project to place GPS tracking collars on mountain lions. As part of the effort, biologists will track seven to 15 mountain lions in a number of locations throughout Nebraska to learn more about the species and maintain the region’s current population. Staff will begin locating mountain lions with the help of anyone who captures images of mountain lions on trail cameras.
