Trump's border wall will cut off many Sonoran Desert species from their migratory routes and essential water sources like Quitobaquito Springs.
Kimi Eisele, the Tucson-based performance artist who coordinated the event, said the purpose was to draw attention to the fact that the new border wall the Trump administration is building across Arizona will cut off many Sonoran Desert species from their migratory routes and essential water sources like Quitobaquito Springs.
