ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the 700 miles of 15-foot-high, double-layered steel fence being built along the U.S.-Mexican border that the U.S. Congress authorized last year. Intended to deter illegal immigrants, completion of the border fence would also imperil U.S. jaguars and other wildlife. Without access to prey and mates on the Mexican side of the border, animals that are already in the United States would have little hope of survival. The Arizona portion of the wall alone would cross or go near ten protected areas critical to wildlife.
