    President Trump's promise to build a "great wall" along the US-Mexico
    border remains one of the central and most controversial promises of his presidency. But scientists from the University of Arizona are starting
    to unravel the effect that such a wall could have on a desert ecosystem
    it will cut through. The team is studying wildlife in the Sonoran
    Desert, which stretches across the border from Arizona into Mexico and
    is already divided by a barrier at the border. BBC science reporter
    Victoria Gill joined the team in a search for some of the desert's most endangered animals.
