Here’s a link to a new article by Emil McCain and Jack Childs in the Journal of Mammalogy. Nice cover shot of Macho B, too. Congrats Emil and Jack!

The very last line says it all : “The current population of jaguars in the borderlands region, and particularly the United States portion of that population, appears to be dependent on large expanses of core and connective habitats for dispersal and cross-border movements within the bioregion of southern Arizona and New Mexico and eastern Sonora, Mexico. If this cohesive habitat and gene flow throughout the region are disrupted by the proposed fence along the border, it is our belief that the population of jaguars in the borderlands will be at great risk and that jaguars will not persist in the United States.”
