Urban Sprawl and Habitat Destruction
What is the solution?

What problems will it address?

How will it help?

Are there any negative parts or downsides to this solution?

Who needs to participate for the solution to be successful?
By: Kylie Crockett and Sidney Bloom
What is the problem?

What is causing the problem?

What are some effects of the problem?

Is the problem becoming worse or better? Why?

What are some possible solutions to the problem?
Urban Sprawl: The uncontrolled expansion of urban areas.
The cause of the problem is that the human population rates are increasing.
The problem is habitats are being destroyed because of the human population growth rate.
Habitat Destruction: the demolition of a natural environment of an organism.
The effect of the problem is that when cities are populating quickly its causing cities to destroy corn fields, woods, swamp lands or other habitats to make room for new homes and buildings.
Worse because our population keeps increasing and we are in need of more space. We are destroying more habitats to clear space for newer, bigger homes to fit more people.
A solution to this problem would be to have population laws controlling how much land a city can take up. The could make city expansion limits. Also a small but powerful thing to do is to plant trees.
The city, state or country that is taking on the solution. This solution would only work if the city would obey the solution.
It would help save species and their habitats. It would also help decrease the animal extinction rate.
Some problems the solution would address would be that if cities were at there max amount of space and wanted to add more land to the area to make more money and more homes, the population solution would not allow that.
Yes, there are a couple of negative parts to the solution. One is if people are having more children and need more space. The city cannot take up more space that could cause a problem for the family and city.
Works Cited
There are many possible solutions to control the habitat loss, for example, in Oregon they have law about how much space the capital can take up. For us to be able to control the amount of space we take up, we need to control how much land cities/towns are allowed to take up. Also if we plant more trees in open areas it can help.
