ILCP Borderlands RAVE

Beginning several weeks ago, the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) launched another RAVE (Rapid Assesment Visual Expedition) along the US/Mexico border in an attempt to document some of the most rare and intact eco-systems in North America. The sights were set on the border when last year, the Department of Homeland Security bypassed many laws and regulations to erect a massive fence along the US border in an attempt to wall-out illegal immigration and drug trafficking. Currently, landowners and officials along the border recognze this effort as a failed attempt that has done nothing to stem the flow – but has in fact walled Americans in – cutting us off from bi-national relationships, cultural heritage and of course – slicing through the artery of mammal migrations that use corridors up and down the border. This is the tip of the iceberg. I encourage you to read on at the ILCP blog
