Another consequence of introducing a
species is it could potentially take all the food
or water supplies from the native animals
Climate change can affect the habitats of animals, especially those that rely
on colder climates. The animals may not be able to survive in a hotter climate
and become threatened.
When a species is introduced into a habitat, it can
become a predator to the native species that live there.
Humans can also be considered predators to animals. Our presence in
the habitats of animals alone can harm their survival rate, but especially
by poaching or hunting animals. Trophy hunting or hunting for selling on the
black market has become a huge threat to the lives of animals.
An introduced species may carry diseases that are unfamiliar to the
animals and habitat. The native organisms are then unprepared to
fight these diseases and can be killed easily.
