Full Answer

Mining threatens the savannas by destroying the landscaping. Once the landscape is destroyed, it can take hundreds of years to bounce back. It hurts food sources and homes of many animals. Poaching and hunting endangers many species native to the grasslands. These acts also make some food sources scare as natural predators lose prey. As more wind farms are constructed, it destroys many natural habitats which displaces many animals. The creation of roads also harms the natural landscape in the savannas.
