Border Wall

This portfolio illustrates the effects of the border wall on wildlife and the environment in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Land was purchased by the National Wildlife Refuge system over 70+ years to restore a wildlife corridor where 95% of native habitat is gone. Many of the wall sections were constructed on these government purchased parcels and in March 2018, Congress funded another 35 miles of wall to be built on additional corridor land. Over 500 species of birds, endangered ocelots and numerous other species risk further habitat loss in the already dwindling areas that historically supported these populations.
