Be a Voice for Wildlife in the Borderlands

The Trump administration’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) wants to build a wall through crucial wildlife habitat - including our national wildlife refuges – and they don’t care what you have to say about it.

In an attempt to sidestep any opposition, the administration and CBP are soliciting "public comments" about a proposed border wall expansion in southeastern Texas, without actually making this request known to the public.

The wall would cut through public lands that protect countless species of wildlife, including more than 400 bird species and 300 butterfly species. It would destroy the critical corridors that allow two endangered cat species – ocelots and jaguarundis – to access the territory they need to successfully hunt and breed. With fewer than 50 ocelots left in the United States and the number of jaguarundis unknown, these refuges may be their last hope for recovery in the U.S.!

Be a voice for wildlife! Tell CBP the public deserves to be heard on issues this important.
