The poaching of animals also has a significant effect on the environment. Many mammals that poached from forests are important to the dispersion of seeds and pollination of plants. Poaching affects the seedling abundance, seed dispersal and predation.
Hunting and poaching causes damage to the rainforest ecosystem by removing species key to the system’s functioning. The loss of these species can mean extinction for many others. For example, in Asia tiger populations have been dramatically reduced due to widespread habitat loss and Chinese demand for traditional medicinal products made from tiger parts. Endangered Sumatran elephants are increasingly poached for their ivory and could go extinct within 50 years at present hunting rates.
