  APNM and Valles Caldera Trust
team up to raise cougar awareness

This year’s Run the Caldera features participation
from Cougar Smart New Mexico
APNM is pleased to announce its collaboration with the Valles Caldera Trust in its 7th annual Run the Caldera series of marathons, to be held this weekend (June 9th & 10th). Inspired by the success of last year’s bear-themed event, the 2012 races are deemed the Year of the Cougar and intended to foster awareness of New Mexico’s vital population of mountain lions.

These Cougar Smart kids tags and other educational materials will be featured at this weekend’s races.

Our collaboration with the northern New Mexico preserve includes promotion of Cougar Smart New Mexico, APNM’s program for coexistence with the state’s oft-persecuted cats via safety education and outreach. For this year’s race, each runner’s packet contains Cougar Smart materials including a kids’ tag (pictured) including a carabiner for attaching and an educational flier (to order these for yourself or your friends/family, contact APNM’s Wildlife Campaign Manager). 

APNM will also be attending Sunday’s marathon and half-marathon; find our table at the Banco Bonito staging area and learn more about our organization’s longstanding advocacy for New Mexico’s cougars and the ongoing challenges to their survival. Find more information on the Valles Caldera’s website about this weekend’s event and the preserve guidelines.

Thank you to Valles Caldera for their help in conserving New Mexico’s majestic cougars!
