The pandemic has not stopped border-wall construction.
While we've been sheltering in place, crews on the U.S.-Mexico border have been blasting away mountains, mowing down ancient cactuses, tearing through sacred sites, draining springs, and erecting walls that hurt communities and end migrations for wildlife like jaguars.
Join us on Thursday, July 16, for the Center's next Saving Life on Earth discussion to learn more about what's happening in the borderlands and how you can help.
More than 650 miles of barriers already exist along the border. These walls, fences and barricades cut through sensitive ecosystems, disrupt animal migration patterns, cause catastrophic flooding, and divide communities and tribal nations.
This is an unfolding tragedy for the region's diverse wildlife and people, as well as its rugged and spectacular landscapes. We're fighting in the courts, in Congress and in our communities to stop the Trump administration's cynical attack on our beautiful borderlands.
Thursday's presentation will feature the Center's Borderlands Campaigner Laiken Jordahl and Southwest Advocate Randy Serraglio, and it'll include live translation in Spanish.
The hour-long webinar starts at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET. It's free, but you have to sign up.
