Help ensure a future for mountain lions in Vermont

Though mountain lions once roamed the great state of Vermont, human persecution has eliminated them from its hills and forests. Since there is no mountain lion population to study, there isn't any current research in Vermont.

Check out other state pages to see the research papers, agency reports, news articles, legal documents, and other documents addressing mountain lions in those states.

Environmental Scorecard

League of Conservation Voters

The League of Conservation Voters' scorecard considers the State Legislature's environmental records since 1971. It quantifies the environmental votes of each individual legislator — an important first step in considering accountability — and provides critical qualitative assessments as well. The scorecard will help you to know your legislator before you write a letter in support of cougars.
