ILCP Borderlands RAVE Blog

Several members of the International League of Conservation Photographers (or ILCP for short) are currently spending three weeks in the borderlands between the U.S. and Mexico in an effort to photograph the wild places, peoples, plants and animals being affected by the construction of the border wall. Over this relatively short period of time, the crew will putting all of their efforts towards building a portfolio of images that can be used to bring a new light to this situation that we in the U.S. are hearing so much about these days. Much is often said about the immigration issues that surround the wall's construction but little has been said about how it will affect things like animal migration and habitat fragmentation. To learn more about the RAVE, visit the ILCP's website.

If you are interested in following the progress of the team, they have set up a blog where you can not only see their location, but also samples of images that are being made each day.
