A habitat is the natural home or environment of a plant, an animal, or other organism. A habitat provides an animal with food, water, and a place to live. Sometimes animals cannot live in their natural habitats, and humans must build habitats for them. To meet the animals’ needs, people try to mimic their natural habitats as much as possible.
