Will the border wall strike a fatal blow to one of the most imperiled wild areas in North America?
Wildlands Network advocates creating and protecting more habitat connections for wildlife in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands region—and firmly opposes the border wall. Native animals like jaguars, Mexican wolves, pronghorns, and ocelots once roamed freely between our two countries, but now face extensive and dangerous barriers to their natural movements.
Award-winning conservation photographer and writer Krista Schlyer has created a visually compelling story map, titled “Embattled Borderlands,” to bear witness to the wildlife, places, and people whose future is threatened by the border wall and the associated militarization of this ecologically invaluable region. Wildlands Network is pleased to share Krista’s cutting-edge blend of narrative, photographs, and mapping technology on behalf of the species who rely on the borderlands to survive.
