Embattled Borderlands: A Virtual Visit to the U.S.-Mexico Border

Tour the stunning natural and cultural richness of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands in this story map created by award winning photographer and writer Krista Schlyer. Krista collaborated with researchers, filmmakers, photographers and conservation organizations, including Sky Island Alliance, to paint a vivid portrait of the borderlands region and the threats posed by the proposed border wall expansion.

Sky Island Alliance opposes further construction of a wall that will damage and divide human and natural communities and halt the movement of wildlife and water. We are committed to working with neighbors and partners in Mexico to keep the Sky Island Region whole and functioning.
