This is very abrupt since Red Pandas are protected in China, India, Bhutan, and Nepal. They are victim to habitat loss from deforestation or humans’ clear-cutting of their nature ecosystem. You’d think that we would stop clear-cutting their ecosystem after we learnt that they are endangered, however their natural ecosystem is still diminishing as more of their ecosystem is lost to logging and to the ecosystems’ alteration to agroecosystems. Habitat loss and fragmentation are causing the loss of red panda nesting trees and bamboo that the red panda consumes. Logging and other forms of ecosystem damages have caused a disruption or disturbance in the equilibrium of the ecosystem and have given an advantage to the seasonal monsoon; allowing it to hurl rich soil down mountainsides.
The amount of property that was damaged by hurricane Harvey was vast. Strong winds are what people think of when they think of a hurricane. The winds from Harvey were said to have reached 130 mph.
