MURICA — Looks like Trump’s wall could cause great damage to the plants and wildlife.
According to a study from Stanford University published in the journal BioScience, the construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico could have serious consequences for the wildlife and environment surrounding the area.
The US-Mexico border crosses through six eco-regions. These areas are home to diverse flora and fauna including 62 species tagged as critically endangered, endangered, or vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
The wall will mainly degrade landscape connectivity, preventing species from reaching resources, mates and affecting migration.
The report states that the wall would disconnect 346 species from half of their habitat including the endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep, the Sonoran pronghorn and the Mexican gray wolf.
According to a report from the Center for Biological Diversity, the population of Mexican gray wolves is critically endangered growing by only four wolves from 2014 to 2017.
Apart from affecting wildlife, the wall will also affect the flow of three major rivers: the Rio Grande, Colorado, and Tijuana Rivers.
This also affects between 100 and 500 rivers and streams connected to them.
A study by the University of Texas at Austin released in July last year reported that the wall could threaten the Tamaulipan thornscrub ecosystem, the endangered wildflower Zapata bladderpod, and the threatened whiskerbush cactus.
Researchers from this study suggest alternatives that could allow for wildlife movements such as wildlife crossings and electronic sensors.

The Smallest Bird you have ever seen
By accident I got hold of two of the smallest eggs I have ever seen.
Should I incubate them?
Would I be able to raise a baby bird that would hatch from it?
The little bird is called a Wren. In my country it is the second smallest bird species there is.
It hatched so fast that I missed it.
More stories soon cool if you subscribe
The incubator I used is a MS incubator
For filming I used a canon EOSD7 and an I-phone 5s

Why can’t we fly a plane into space ?
Why can’t we fly a plane into space, what stops it from just flying higher and higher until we are in space?, sounds like a daft question but it has interesting implications that mean we might not be that far from a plane that can fly into space.
You can now translate this and other curious droid videos, see my video about it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLPVgIytKyg
Well, there several issues but assuming we are in something like a normal jet airliner, then one of the main problems is the air, or lack of it as we get closer to space.
