Any animal that is already running out of habitat is going to be negatively impacted by rises in human population. Animals that need more room than they have are going to be harshly affected, animals like the Florida Panther are running out of places to live. To backup this point, Hawaii is the state that has the most endangered species.
Some species of animals are being affected by population growth in different ways. For example, there are more deer in the U.S. now than there were 100 years ago. There are similar statistics for kangaroo in Australia. The prairie dog, a keystone species, has done quite well with population growth and have started inhabiting grass adjacent to highways. This may be because more human population wards off natural predators such as coyotes, foxes ect. As a result of growing human populations, some animals suffer and some thrive.
