Sky Island Coffee Break: Border Wildlife Study 90-Day Report
July 23, 2020, 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Join us as we share new results from the first 90 days of our Border Wildlife Study documenting species in the path of the border wall. Since March 9, 2020, our 60-camera array along 34 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border recorded a huge diversity of mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects that live along the rugged and scenic border. Wall construction is beginning this month on the eastern edge of our study site in the Huachuca Mountains through one of the last remaining cross-border corridors in the Sky Island region.
This Coffee Break webinar will discuss the 57 species detected so far and the urgent need to protect their habitat from imminent destruction. We will share updates on wall construction and opportunities to take action—including how you can volunteer to support this research online by identifying species detected in the 23,000 wildlife photos we’ve collected so far!
The Border Wildlife Study is conducted in partnership with Patagonia Area Resource Alliance and Naturalia, A.C. with support from the Patagonia Foundation, Papoose Foundation, New York Community Trust, Wilburforce Foundation, and generous individual gifts that keep our cameras running 24/7.
