The loss of microbes in soils that formerly supported tropical forests. and changes in global climate brought about by the release of greenhouse gases are all results of human activity. the extinction of fish and various aquatic species in polluted habitats.

Introduction of exotic species -The introduction of new species in certain habitats by man can affect the bio-diversity of that region causing the gradual disappearance of other original species .

. Overexploitation • The fact that there was too much hunting of the whale turned it into an enderenged • Species some animals are also overkilled because of magical medicine traditions.
