Mention two causes of loss of biodiversity?
Two causes of loss of biodiversity are:
- Habitat destruction, fragmentation, and degradation due to human activities such as deforestation, urbanization, and agriculture. These activities destroy the natural habitats of species, leading to their decline and extinction.
- Overexploitation of natural resources, such as overfishing, hunting, and poaching. This can lead to the depletion of populations of species and affect their ability to reproduce and survive.
