Wildlife is destroyed most when


There is lack of proper care


Mass scale hunting for foreign trade


Its natural habitat is destroyed


Natural calamity


When there are no more individuals of a species (plant or animal) alive anywhere in the world, the species is said to be extinct. Extinction is also known as the process of dying out. The process is a completely natural part of evolution. But sometimes extinctions happen at a higher and a faster rate than usual. Factors such as large body size, small population, massive habitat loss and position at a higher trophic level favor extinction
So, the correct answer is 'Its natural habitat is destroyed'

Scientists believe that the Hawaiian island chain as it currently exists was formed as sea-floor spreading caused the Earth's crust to slowly move over a stationary point of volcanic activity in the mantle of the Earth.
While above the area of activity, volcanic eruptions formed the islands, and as sea-floor spreading moved the newly formed island off the area of activity, other new islands formed leading to the seven islands that now exist. The largest island in the chain is the only one that is currently volcanically active, suggesting that it is still above the active region on the mantel.
