Wildlife is threatened by many factors:
Predators, big herbivores and primates are often seen as “problem animals” and killed for economic interests by farmers or poor communities. Wild animals are victims of the loss of suitable land.
Public land and prairies are often also occupied by commercial cattle and this takes away further land from wild animals and exacerbates the conflict predator-human activities, which is, then, poorly managed.
Defenseless species fall victims of poisoning, secondary poisoning, trapping and pollution.
Vulnerable and even endangered species are traded internationally, dead or alive or captive bred for government’s and privates` profit. Wildlife also falls victim of natural disasters.
