Habitat loss one of largest factors contributing to extinction of species on planet
Many species dependent on large acreage for survival losing battle
Natural areas diminishing due to things like global warming and humans taking over more of the areas they need for survival
Migratory birds losing resting stopovers, especially in South Florida where last stop before long trip over water to South American migration grounds and where first stop after long migration back north
Exotic plant and animal species invading native landscape therefore usable food sources not as abundant as once were
Hedgerows pollinators and other wildlife need for protection and travel being eliminated
Numerous wildlife habitats along migratory way beneficial because provide critical elements needed for species survival.
