A wall along the United States/Mexico border could seriously disrupt the natural habitats and movements of many animals species that live there. (Seeker)

Along with the human migrants targeted by the U.S. president, the jaguars, bighorn sheep and deer-like Sonoran pronghorns of northern Mexico have a lot to lose from his planned border wall.

Such species currently roam at will back and forth across the border of Mexico and the United States in reserves specially protected by both countries' governments.

Conservationists fear Trump's vow to build a wall the length of the border to keep criminals out of the United States will doom the beasts to extinction.

It would stop them getting where they need to go to feed and mate.

...In the parched desert, the animals have to trot long distances to look for water, food and shelter.
