For anyone who continues to doubt the potentially disastrous impacts of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border on wildlife (let alone people), then perhaps these two articles will help you decide which side of the fence you want to be on:
- A Wall in the Wild: The Disastrous Impacts of Trump’s Border Wall on Wildlife, by Noah Greenwald, Brian Segee, Tierra Curry and Curt Bradley (Center for Biological Diversity, May 2017)
- “Border wall would put more than 100 endangered species at risk“, by David Ruth (Rice University)
- No wall necessary: the USA-Mexico border at Nogales in 1915.
- The Transnational Metropolitan Areas of Mexico-USA.
- Trump’s U.S.-Mexico Border Wall is already almost complete.
- Net migration flow from Mexico to the USA falls close to zero or has possibly reversed (2012)

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
My youngest son has just entered secondary school and so I bought a new copy of your excellent book for his teacher and 4 used copies for the classroom JUST 20 minutes ago from Amazon!!!!!!
I did the same for my eldest boy 3 years ago.
That is fantastic! Thank you!!!! I’m glad the book is still serving a useful purpose.
I find it curious, from a “scientific pov” that little or no hyper emotional data has appeared documenting the eco-disaster played out over the last 40 years directly attributable to illegal foot travel and associated moto-vehicle use through the Sonoran Deserts fragile animal and plant habitat, that a “wall” could possibly overshadow. Puzzling. Very puzzling.
