Why are some bird species so much more threatened than others?

    Habitat destruction is putting a large percentage of birds at risk of endangerment and extinction. Bird populations in the Indo-Malayan area have been harmed by immense deforestation of the Sumatra and Borneo lowlands. Some seabirds have become endangered as a result of poor fishing techniques and often albatrosses and petrels die as bycatch. The spread of agriculture has hurt 73% of birds on the endangered species list. The issue is widespread and 92% of countries on earth house at least 1 endangered species of bird. However, more than half of the threatened species are found on islands and a large portion live in Brazil, where are the Amazon Rainforest is undergoing rapid destruction.
