Decreasing habitat is a problem for all eight species of bears. Increasing areas of land for agriculture is a major problem for several species, including the Malayan sun bear, which is losing its territory for oil palm plantations.
Logging is also a major threat for giant pandas, sun bears, sloth bears, and Himalayan black bears. Other ways their habitat is being lost include roads, mining, human-caused fires, and tree plantations.
