Over 100 Endangered Species Threatened by Trump’s Wall

(ENDANGERED SPECIES/POLITICS) President Trump’s proposed border wall has sparked a number of environmental and wildlife studies--many of which have found the border wall would cause significant damage to several ecosystems. The construction of the 1,200-mile wall—along with its related infrastructure and enforcement—will effectively block migration corridors, decrease genetic diversity, destroy habitat, and add traffic, noise, and light pollution to vast stretches of the wild borderlands. Trump's wall is said to threaten over 100 species with ranges near or crossing the Mexico–United States border. This number includes 81 already endangered and threatened species, like jaguars, ocelots, gray wolves, and even eagles. Read on to learn more about the far-reaching consequences for one of the most biologically diverse regions in North America. -- Global Animal
