Animal movement across the U.S.-Mexico border has become increasingly limited with hardening of the international boundary with border wall over the last few decades. We'll review how the border has physically changed in recent years and see photo and video evidence of how animals in Arizona and Sonora react to border wall.

Emily Burns is the Program Director at Sky Island Alliance and leads the team running all of our programs, including the Border Wildlife Study, the Path of the Jaguar Internship Program, Sky Island FotoFauna, Spring Seeker, our conservation projects across public and private lands. Emily joined Sky Island Alliance in 2019 after practicing conservation science and restoration for nearly a decade in the redwood forests of California at Save the Redwoods League. Emily received her doctorate in 2009 from the University of California, Berkeley in Integrative Biology and conducted postdoctoral research on drought tolerance in ferns at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
