Preventing Habitat Loss

Habitat loss is one of the largest reasons that threaten wildlife.  It is the main threat to 85% of all endangered and threatened species. Fragmentation, expansion of agricultural land, harvesting timber and overgrazing are just a few of the reasons for this loss.  Some things you can do to help is to plant native trees, bushes, and flowers to attract local species and provide a water source for animals.  Also , reduce pesticide use.
