•Burning vegetation Over many years humans have been cutting down trees
in Puerto Rico. The Puerto Rican parrot makes its nest in hollow spaces those same trees. Only a few remain so this species is in danger. The Coqui Frog is also an endangered species because of habitat loss. One of the effects on the ecosystem is when you pull trees out of the ground the soil loosens and ends up washing out to sea.
