NEWSLINK: Trump’s border wall poses ecological threats

Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S. border with Mexico threatens many kinds of life, from humans to endangered species.

Trump announced his administration’s plan to build a barrier on the southern U.S. border on Jan. 25, pursuing an oft-repeated campaign promise. He proposes to build a “contiguous, physical wall” — considered the most expensive way to secure a border — and he repeatedly has said Mexico will pay for the wall, which Mexico vehemently denies.

Construction would involve building over tribal land, in national parks and forests and on private property, as well as on rough, rugged terrain.
