Human Impact on the Environment (Environmental Science)

What is the Problem?

During a study of ecosystems we learned about how humans impact the enviornment in negative ways including pollution, deforestation, desertification, building dams and overpopulation. I wonder if humans are impacting the environment in positive ways, especially with more awareness of how specific habitats are affected in the ecostysem. When I think about habitats I wonder how animals are affected and if there are specific ways humans could help animals without disturbing their natural environment.

What is your hypothesis?  What variables will you include in your study?
