Restoring Water Along US-Mexico Border

Changing a River’s Trajectory

WWF and partners help restore a section of the Rio Grande/Bravo along the US-Mexico border

Forming 1,255 miles of the US-Mexican border between El Paso and the Gulf of Mexico, the Rio Grande/Bravo winds its way through the Chihuahuan Desert and serves as the primary source of water for 5.5 million people. Far-ranging wildlife such as bighorn sheep, elk, black bears and mountain lions, as well as numerous native endangered fish, rely on the river and surrounding land for food and shelter.
