How does Urbanization threaten ecosystems?

    Well mainly urbanization destroys local ecosystems. When cities are built and expanded they have to level down and pave over natural lands, regardless of high “important” these lands are comparatively, it is still destroying an ecosystem nonetheless. If forces local wildlife to have to live in a smaller area. Also add to this the large amounts of pollution that occurs. Once the city is built there will inevitably be trash and this trash has to go somewhere outside the cities, so it is put in another area in which an area of land has to be destroyed. Then eventually when more people begin to move into the city area, suburbs pop up around the city, causing the same effect on even more local wildlife. Eventually there is minimal natural areas left, and the one’s that are have to suffer through all the pollution and human traffic coming through constantly.
