Is the boa constrictor affected by man?

Humans definitely impact on the lives of boas. We are slowly but gradually destroying their habits thus killing the boa's homes in South America. Humans also keep these magnificent creatures as pets, keeping them captive in cages. Bottom line, boas of all kinds are affected by man. ;D -From a 7th grader, studying for her project on Emerald Tree Boas! <33
