In this case the sharks are captured alive and their fins are cut off and the shark is then tossed back into the water where it drowns. Habitat loss is also a major problem for wildlife. (Kaufman and Franz, 1993, 357). This is caused by human developments encroaching on wild areas, and because of deforestation for agriculture or lumber. And finally, humans cause habitat destruction by introducing non-native animals to ecosystems. (1993).

Established in 1980 the refuge has been set aside for non-game migratory birds who are making their way south to lower Florida, Mexico or the Caribbean. More than 350 species of birds have been spotted at Bon Secour which makes the refuge a big draw for birders young and old alike. Most frequently seen are larage numbers of ospery and heron, large birds that get lots of human response. Visitors are welcomed to walk the Pine Beach Trail that will take you through lush areas filled with all manner of plant life. Among the reasons that Bon Secour was set aside as a refuge was the desire to preserve the endangered Alabama beach mouse, a native of the dunes and to protect the habitat of a variety of sea turtles. In fact the words "Bon Secour" mean "Safe Harbor" and certainly that is what this area has now become for the plant and wild life that peacefully abide here.
