Overexploitaion
Overexploitaion

  • Harvesting or hunting something to the point that the population cannot replenish.

  • Humans overexploit more than any other species, giving the name “human exploitation”


Affect on ecosystems
Affect on ecosystems

  • When a population is overexploited, it affects the ecosystem it used to be a part of.

  • If a population is overexploited, its prey will overpopulate and its predator will begin to die out.

To the right are illegally harvested sea turtle eggs in Borneo. If overexploitaion like this keeps happening, the prey of the sea turles will overpopulate and their predators will starve.
