Ruth Passernig



Originally from Austin, Texas, I received my B.Sc. from University of Portland in Portland, Oregon. I have been involved with the large mammal monitoring project in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico for several years. I have gone on to work on numerous other wildlife research and management projects. Through my experiences I have become proficient at the capture and monitoring of mountain lions and am pursuing a M.S. degree from NMSU studying mountain lion ecology.
