Habitat loss and fragmentation has long been known as one of the primary causes for biodiversity loss in species around the world. The quality and connectivity of species habitats are being directly (e.g. the clearing of land for crops and housing) and indirectly (e.g. climate change due to rising atmospheric carbon levels) impacted by human actions. It is incumbant on humans to more fully understand how to identify and mitigate these activities before we lose more habitat, fragment more ecosystems and permanently extinguish more species.
