This removal of species from the wild degrades the biodiversity and genetic variety in a system and this could eventually lead to the collapse of the entire ecosystem. Poaching is another harmful impact that humans have on wildlife. . (Kaufman and Franz, 1993, 357). Poachers hunt down animals like elephants and rhinoceros for their ivory, and leave the rest of the butchered animal to rot. Shark finning is in line with ivory harvesting. 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.
