We have some exciting news! In just six months of running our #BorderWildlifeStudy, we've detected more than 100 species along the U.S.-Mexico border, a globally renowned hotspot for biodiversity.

Newly detected species include porcupine and a Mexican subspecies of Virginia opossum that reaches its northern limits in the Sky Island borderlands. We also found that our highest wildlife diversity is in the Patagonia Mountains and the our highest number of bird species is in the San Rafael Valley.

We couldn't have kept this study going through a pandemic without your support. It's amazing that we've reached the half-year mark already! Thank you for your continued support in our efforts to document the wildlife that live in or migrate through our wonderful borderlands.
