Screening 3: Think Like a Scientist: Boundaries, Neil Losin, Nate Dappen, Day’s Edge Productions | 2016 | 7 min.

Humans construct boundaries — around our homes, our neighbor-hoods, and our nations — to bring order to a chaotic world. But we rarely consider how these boundaries affect other creatures.  Meet conservation photographer Krista Schlyer, who has spent the last seven years documenting the environmental effects of the U.S./Mexico bor-der wall, and biologist Jon Beckmann, who studies how man-made barriers influence the movement of wildlife. Schlyer and Beckmann have seen damaging impacts of the border wall firsthand, but they remain optimistic. Humans probably won’t stop constructing walls and fences any time soon, but planning our boundaries with wildlife in mind can help prevent these structures from causing environmental harm.
