Continental Divide: Borderlands Wildlife, People and the Wall




Bard College Campus Center
North Ravine Road, Annandale on Hudson, NY 12504

**Exhibit On view from March 10th through April 10th, 2019 in the Bard College Campus Center. Opening reception and panel discussion on Thursday, March 14th, 2019**

A photography exhibit about the US México ecology and the communities that live there. In the words of Krista Schlyer: “The topic of the border wall between the United States and Mexico continues to be broadly and hotly debated: on national news media, by local and state governments, and even in coffee shops and over the dinner table. By now, broad segments of the population have heard widely varying opinions about the wall’s effect on illegal immigration, international politics, and the drug war. But what about the wall’s effect on the Sonoran pronghorn antelope herds and the kit fox? On the Mexican gray wolf, the ocelot, the jaguar, and the bighorn sheep? In unforgettable images and evocative text, Continental Divide: Wildlife, People, and the Border Wall helps readers understand all that is at stake”
