Habitat destruction occurs when the area in which an animal livesis being destroyed or encroached upon. It sometimes leads to theextinction of a species.
Deforestation is the major cause, but cataclysmic events such as tornadoes and tsunamis can wreck habitat also.
Stop cutting down the trees
Habitat destruction is a main cause of animals become endangered or extinct. What causes it is humans clearing the land for industry and natural disasters such as floods a…nd fires.
Many organisms can live in an environment. The number and variety is biodiversity. It affects because habitat destruction takes habitats away from its inhabitant therefore …making the animal leave and after a long period of time many animals will be gone.
Conversion (draining wetlands, flooding a valley, or clearing a forest), erosion, eradication of a keystone species, pollution.
Build Sanctuaries, or help at local ones. Reduce, Re-use, recycle!
Habitat destruction caused by humans includes conversion of land to agriculture, urban sprawl, infrastructure development, and other anthropogenic changes to the characteristi…cs of land. Deforestation (logging), and coral reef degradation (dredging) are specific types of habitat destruction.
In areas that people want to live in, or areas near volcanoes, in the path of hurricanes, anywhere there is an earthquake, etc.
the effect on humans is that more and more people are now concerned with helping the earth more than before.
animals will die,plants will die,animals and plants might become extinct.
tell them to try to give them a better place and food so they can live better but dont take other place.
Absolutely. Numbats can only be found in eucalyptus bushland of southwest Western Australia. This bushland also needs a certain amount of grassy understorey. They prefer habit…at dominated by Wandoo, a type of eucalyptus. This habitat has been under threat since European settlement - mostly from agriculture, land-clearing and changed fire regimes. Numbats used to be found across southern Australia. Now, due to the loss of their habitat, they are limited to the southwestern corner of Western Australia. Much of this is prime farming land.
Cause they fill like it.
