The five major causes of biodiversity losses are as follows:
1.Habitat loss: Outright fragmentation of the ecosystem puts animal and plant species at risk
- Invasive species: Non-native species introduced in an environment will put the native species at risk or outright lead to extinction.
- Overexploitation: An example of this is extreme hunting and over fishing.
- Pollution: Water, soil, air pollution further accelerates the destruction of biodiversity
- Climate Change: Climate Change associated with global warming raises greenhouse gas levels that might affect biodiversity.
