While receiving many resources from strip mining is helpful, it is killing many different plants and trees. About every 24 hours one hundred fifty to two hundred species of birds, insects, plants, and other mammals become extinct, and some of that is from strip mining because of the damage it does to the species habitats. Also strip mines make it easier for miners to extract coal, in some countries, like Australia, 80% of their mines are strip mines to compress the coal out of the earth for other human needs.
