Forest damage by wildlife


The wildlife compact the soil, trample, dig for roots, browse, debark and damage seeds.


Wildlife contributes to forest degradation and loss in Africa, particularly elephants in areas such as the Sengwa, Hwange, Mana Pools, Luangwa Valley and Chobe national parks in Southern Africa, where they destroy forests by knocking down trees and 'simplifying' the habitat and ecological processes.
