Tracking Series 07 – Tracking and Wildlife Conservation: US-Mexico Border Wildlife Study with Sky Island Alliance
Feb 03, 2021 Season 1
Ron Waline / Bryon Lichtenhan / Louise Misztal

In this seventh episode of my tracking series I get out in the field with Bryon Lichtenhan of Sky Island Alliance to volunteer doing some work in gathering data for a border wall study that the conservation organization is conducting. In this journalistic style episode we learn from Bryon and the Executive Director of Sky Island Alliance, Louise Misztal, why wildlife migration corridors along the border are important, the threat that the looming border wall poses to these corridors, and how tracking supports SIA’s efforts in collecting data to bolster conservation work towards preserving the area and the migration corridors used by many species. You’ll also have an opportunity to learn tracking knowledge from Bryon and get a peek into the minds of trackers as Bryon and I attempt to decipher tracks and sign in real time.
