Wild & Weird: The San Pedro River
Flowing through the arid borderlands of Arizona and Sonora, Mexico, the San Pedro is more than a river. It's a miracle.
More than 80 species of mammals — including jaguars, coatis, pumas, bears, ocelots and bats — call the river basin home. Add to that Sonoran tiger salamanders and western barking frogs, imperiled yellow-billed cuckoos, more than 250 species of migratory birds, and incredible native fish species like the Gila chub, longfin dace, desert sucker and roundtail chub, and you realize why one of the last undammed rivers in the Southwest needs to be protected.
