Africa is at the edge of losing a number of bird and animal species. The increasing human-population in Africa is destroying the natural habitat of several species. Mining, road development, fencing, and ranching have also pushed several species to the brink of extinction. Here is more about the Endangered Species of Dwindling Wildlife of Africa.

If a plant or animal species that is alien to an area is introduced there accidentally or deliberately, can lead to devastating consequences for the native species at times.
