We are a diverse group of citizen scientists collecting wildlife images in the backcountry of New Mexico, including the Gila River watershed and Peloncillo Mountains of the southwestern quadrant of the state.
We don't do this for fame and glory, but because we love documenting our state's extraordinary animals in their natural habitat. Some of us are affiliated with nonprofit organizations, research groups, or private property owners.
This website was launched January 1, 2016, by its Silver City-based webmaster, Richard Mahler, and is maintained by him. Unless otherwise identified, the photos were taken by Richard, beginning in January 2010.
