          <li>Pack sunscreen</li>
          <li>Carry extra water just in case</li>
          <li>Pack light</li>

Hi there! This may be worded a little oddly. First, you need to remove the div part of the selector. It won't pass with it in. But also, all these stylings should only apply to the top border. For instance, the border-style you have will apply to all borders.

Now, you can do this one of two ways:

.wildlife  { 
  border-top-width:  10px;
  border-top-style: solid;
  border-top-color : orange;

Or, for more compact code you can combine them all into a single rule:

.wildlife { 
  border-top: 10px solid orange;

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

.primary-content{ padding-top:25px; padding-bottom:95px; } .wildlife { border-top-width: 10px; border-top-style: solid; border-top-color : orange; } .secondary-content{ padding-top:80px; padding-bottom:70px; }
