Oppose the Border Wall and Protect Wildlife
President Trump's crusade to build an impenetrable wall between the U.S. and Mexico could condemn wildlife already on the brink of extinction.
President Trump unfortunately got some money for his wall in the final funding bill for 2018 even though Defenders was able to work with allies on Capitol Hill to block wall construction in the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge in Texas. But Congress can refuse to give him any additional funding for this disastrous roadblock to the survival of imperiled species. Continuing to fund the wall would destroy wildlife habitat and could be the end of the road for imperiled species like endangered Mexican gray wolves, ocelots and jaguars.
We must act now! Demand that Congress refuse to fund the border wall and read our new report, In the Shadow of the Wall, which details the impacts to wildlife that an impenetrable border wall would have along the 2,000-mile border.
