Habitat Destruction Law and Legal Definition
Habitat destruction is the process of spoiling natural habitats so as to make it functionally unable to support the species that live in such habitat. Habitat destruction reduces biodiversity. It displaces and destroys plant/animal species that depend on that particular habitat. Habitat destruction may be for a variety of purposes such as cultivation, industrialization, or urbanization. Mining, logging, trawling and urban sprawl are other sources of habitat destruction.
