Transcript for approximately 800 miles from El Paso, Texas to the Gulf of Mexico. The Rio Grande River (known as the Rio Bravo in Mexico) runs down the middle of the Valley and forms the border between Mexico and the United States. It connects the tWo countries and is a well- spring of life for people, animals, and plants of Mexico and the United States. Four major climactic zones occur in the area and average rainfall ranges from nine inches near El Paso, TX to 26 inches near the Gulf of Mexico. This makes for a great diversity habitats, providing many different types of homes for the large number of bird and other wildlife species that live in the area. In recent years, portions of the Valley have experienced rapid population growth and expansion of agriculture and maquiladora industries (factories 'which are built in Mexico to take advantage of cheap labor but whose products are exported to U.S. markets), in part associated with passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1994. Because the Valley is so important to migrating wildlife, biologists and other conser- vationists are developing a wildlife corridor Houston Outdoor Nature Club Ornithology Group P.O. Box 270894 , Houston, TX 77277-0894 / called the "Lower Rio Grande Valley Wildlife Corridor." A wildlife corridor is a series of land areas linked together in a kind of habitat land- bridge for birds and other wildlife. The Lower Rio Grande Valley Wildlife Corridor is envisioned as a continuous ribbon of habitat stretching across four counties in south Texas. Look at a map of your county. How many green spaces can you find? Where are they located? Are there ways that any of these could be linked together by protecting areas that Ue between them. How could an "Unpave the Way for Wildlife" project help provide a series of stepping stones or contribute to development of a wildlife corridor in your area?
