What are some factors that contribute to food insecurity?

    Habitat destruction has directly and indirectly affected our food security.

    Directly, the loss of habitat that is best for farming is occuring around the world. Whether the land is being turned into housing developments or whether global climate change is changing where it is best to farm, this is a problem. If habitat is lost where we grow food, this will lead to a shortage.

    Furthermore, habitat destruction of forests, deserts, and prairies has lead to changes in the local environment, which impacts the land where food is produced. Erosion from greater exposure to wind or rain has lead to the loss of good soil and to runoff of nutrients.

    Habitat destruction is just one way our food supply is put into jeopardy.
