Animals may mistake litter for food and consume it, leading to digestive issues or choking. Litter can also entangle animals, causing injuries or suffocation. Additionally, chemicals in litter can contaminate water sources, leading to the death of aquatic species. Littering also disrupts the natural habitats of plants and can hinder their growth and reproduction. Overall, littering has a negative impact on the well-being and survival of animal and plant species.

They may also introduce diseases or parasites that the native species are not adapted to, further impacting their survival. Additionally, new species can alter the balance of predator-prey relationships and disrupt the natural food chain. Overall, the introduction of new species can have negative consequences for the native inhabitants of an area.
