Still image from Think Like a Scientist: Boundaries

Humans construct boundaries around homes, neighborhoods, and nations to bring order to a chaotic world. However, they rarely consider how these boundaries affect the environment or others. Photographer Krista Schlyer and biologist Jon Beckman study how fabricated barriers influence the movement of wildlife. Schlyer and Beckmann have seen the damaging impacts resulting from the wall built along the Mexico-United States border. Humans probably will not stop constructing walls and fences any time soon, but planning the boundaries with wildlife in mind can help prevent these structures from causing environmental harm. Part of the "Think Like a Scientist" series.
