1. I do agree that humans cause a huge imapct but it is not always
negative things.There sometimes positive! These are all the negative impacts.Humans are causing polution from there cars,They litter which causes global warming,deforestation (cutting down trees), These are some of the negative now for the postive things Humans recycle,
they give money to the animals websites which help animals habitats
2. Global warming is the most important thing.Humans litter they cause
polution.This can make the ice in the artic melt.What humans are doing everyday can harm lots of animal.people need to do a lot of recycling which can save a lot of animal lives how would u feel if your home is gone.

Heyfa – 1.Humans do have an impact on the enviroment because what they do every day can harm animals or plants. A humans imact can be both positive and negative depending on what you do.Here are some positive impacts a human can cause,composting,throwing rubbish in the bins provided and recycling.Here are some negative impacts a human can cause,littering,deforestation,pollution,littering in the sea and harming animals.

2.Human impact can effect animal and living things by littering on the ground and hungry animals eating it ,thinking it is food. Sometimes sea animals are endangered because of pollution in the sea is causing infections.You should try and ride a car less and walk,scoot or cycle instead, for your own and for the animals benifit.

1.Humans do have an inpact but it is not always posotive polution can be one of them but there is a positive things too like recicleing and lots more but humans also cut off trees and animals can be living in the tree.The humans can also eat a lot of meat and that can can be very harmful they also make the see dirty and fishes can die.

2.This can couse globle warmingpeople have been bulding things

1.I think humans have a huge impact on the environment. Here is a list of all the positive impacts : recycling ,compost ,reuse-able energy. Not all the impacts are good though .Here is a list of negative impacts: pollution, logging , littering , eating to much meat .
2.This can be a danger to animals and they’re habitats .This is why people have to recycle and you can be fined littering. Think about it if all of the animals died out what meat would we have to eat? The cause of global warming is pollution . Global warming causes the world to get hotter . Therefore making places which are meant to be cold hot and places which are meant to be hot even hotter .

1. I do agree with this stament because what humans do can impact.
postive impact means for excample recycling,growing plants and being a vegetarian.
negative impact means like littering,cutting trees.

2. Humans killed many plants over the past century.It is taking oxygen.It harmed lot of animals.
It caused pollution and pollution killed lots of species like polar bears there homes are melting.lots of fishes get in the litter because 75 present of people litter in places and it harms lots of animals.Did you know that human impact could lead to danger.

What we can do to fix it is stop littering make the air more clean bye stop driving cars and stop driving motor bikes and start walking or ride a bike.

2. How its dangorus to keep on doing this is it can kill our whole wold just by starting from the sea more rubbish in the sea I can start going to the beach and then after its going to hit the whole city and we need too stop smoking and using eltic stuff that often.

1. I agree with humans have an impact because some people cut down trees to make paper and plution.Plution is when people make the world hotter by using air and driving with gas coming out. The postive impacts are recycling things like bottles and paper.
2. the most dangeros impact is deforestation which is cutting trees and destroying animals home like monkeys and will have nothing to eat.

1. I agree with this statement because humans have a nagative impact on the beautiful earth. Positive impacts: humans increase crop production rates which helps others help animals in need. they also help the enviroment by recycling waate that you dont need.
Negative impacts: humans cut down trees aka deforestation which are also animals habitats.
humans use animals to test harmful products to see if they are safe for humans which is really bad and needs to stop.
2. A single human can pose a big danger to animals
humans destroy animals habitats, they also eat animals which are dangerous and have made some animals extinct!!!

2. Humans can pose dangers to some habitats because of deforestation because if plants that the animals eat gets chopped off they will starve and eventually die . Littering can cause danger to habitats because if a swan lived in a pond and someone came and threw a crisp packet in the pond and the swan came close to it might drown an die.
