What Is Habitat Destruction?
Habitat destruction is when a natural habitat becomes incapable of supporting wildlife, and its native species. This means animal’s homes are being destroyed all over the world leaving them with no home. Habitat destruction is one of the biggest threats to both plants and animals.
What are some effects of habitat destruction on animals?
If this problem continues on it can result in the loss of certain species and resources. Destruction causes harm to habitats and kills many species in the process. When animals lose the natural habitat they need to survive its numbers go down, which can also result in the extinction of many animals. Without a natural home many animals are unable to protect themselves and their young. This is one of the main reasons that so many animal species are endangered.
According to sciencing.com
“It's estimated that 14,000 to 35,000 species are at risk of becoming extinct, and habitat destruction is one of the main causes.”
How can this affect humans as well?
Habitat destruction reduces biodiversity and is a big threat to the ecosystem which can have a major impact on humans. The loss of biodiversity also directly affects humans.
