This chapter examines the relationships among immigration, conservation, and security efforts in Cabeza Prieta. Security and conservation programs have coevolved through connections among shared actors, physical space, and efforts to control the landscape. Each process—conservation and security—derives from a perception of threat and contributes to the belief that the threat from the south is increasing. Thus, it is important to pay attention to the ways in which racial and ethnic stereotypes affect conservation science and policy in border regions.
