How does the U.S.-Mexico border wall impact wildlife?



  1. 0 Votes

    Walls put up in natural habitats can affect the ability of land animals to migrate or hunt.  This could additionally have an impact on winged species as well, if their prey is now more restricted to a certain area.  It could lead to more competition between members of certain species who may now be stuck in a more limited region and may deplete their resources faster.

    A scientific study has shown that the construction of a fence along the US Mexico border will have detrimental effects on the migratory behavior of species.  The Ferruginous Pigmy Owl, a low flying bird, was the subject of part of the study.  Bighorn sheep will also be disrupted in their connectivity.
