Save Sky Island Wildlife – Stop border wall construction

More than 100 miles of border wall are under construction now in Arizona. Despite calls to halt border wall construction to ensure community safety during the coronavirus pandemic, the Trump Administration continues full steam ahead building a destructive wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. They’ve waived three dozen laws – from the National Environmental Protection Act to the Endangered Species Act – to fast-track wall construction along nearly the entire Arizona border — putting the wildlife of the Sky Islands at great peril.
This wall – which is already wreaking havoc on beloved wild places like Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge – would bulldoze over a hundred miles of sensitive wildlife habitat, block the last remaining cross-border pathways for iconic species like jaguar and ocelots – and cut the Sky Islands into two.
Act now to tell federal officials you oppose further construction of border wall in Arizona.
