Wildlife and the Wall

Wildlife and the Wall

Construction of a USA-Mexico border wall would have huge impacts on wildlife. Migratory corridors would be eliminated, dispersal events could no longer occur, and access to the Rio Grande River would be cut off for both wildlife and humans.

Action Opportunity
Defenders of Wildlife opposes expansion of the existing 700 mile border wall.  Visit their site to sign a petition to Congress demanding no funding to an impenetrable barrier that will be devastation to migration animals.
