Zad Mangat Environmental Issues 1021F - Huron - section 551 Deforestation on Habitat Loss Some say the world’s environment is a perfect place and some say it is not. Due to environmental issues habitat loss is occurring every single day. There are many different issue causing this topic to be one of the top issues in the world today. There are many subtopic causing this issue which are mining, climate change, deforestation and many others (Klappenbach, n.d). Deforestation is all about cutting down forests to make the land for another use (Szalay, 2013). Deforestation is to make and build houses, crop, urbanization and much more. This has been going and still on going for more than 50 years (Szalay, 2013). It just not happening in one country but many other country likes Brazil, Thailand,Africa, Indonesia and the list can go on and on. But when cutting down forests, how many species live in the forest?

Habitat loss is the greatest threat to life on this planet. It i
