With the occurrence of giant forest fires and deregulation of the climate in the world, our environment is more than ever vulnerable. To explain the causes of such natural disasters, ecologists and experts are pointing the finger on habitat destruction. Scientists even warned that actions of human beings on nature could endanger their survival. One could wonder how it could be possible. To understand that, I present some consequences of habitat destruction.
