I feel blessed to not only have seen the wild cougars outside of Jackson Hole, in the winter of 1999, but to have photographed them as well. - Tom Mangelsen, photographer
Welcome to the Cougar Channel, the multimedia heart of The Cougar Fund website, including everything from videos related to the cougar, to photo galleries, to the cougar in the arts.
It is our policy at The Cougar Fund to use only photos and videos of cougars in the wild. For more about this policy, read Point of View: Game Farm Photography by Tom Mangelsen.
Enjoy a variety of videos and photographs capturing the elusive and majestic cougar, learn about cougar habitats, and experience educational programs.
Artists from a variety of mediums have been inspired by the cougar. To the best of our knowledge, the artwork featured on our website is not related to animals on game farms. If you are an artist with work portraying wild cougars and would like to be featured on The Cougar Fund website, please contact us at 307-733-0797 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cougar is both a powerfully beautiful creature and an elusive one. The mysterious nature of the cougar has made it challenging for scientists, conservationists, and cougar lovers to take photographs of cougars in the wild.
We encourage anyone who has photographs of cougars in the wild to submit them to us. If you have a photograph you are willing to share, please email us.
Your purchase of Cougar Fund caps, mugs, books and artwork will help support our mountain lion outreach and education initiatives.
