What are the causes of wildlife extinction?

I know that humans are the main reason but i am looking on more in the deforestation as a main cause but not sure how to explain it.needing to be able to explain this to a ten year old fifth grader. any suggestions.
he has to have a poster made up showing the estimations of the current impact of deforestation on world. I have found some pictures of animals and plants that are extinct but how would do you figure out the impact they had on the world?

    you can figure out the impact they had on the world by looking it up online or finding it in encyclopedias/your science textbook/or if you have a freind and your in the same class or even learning the same thing you can call them up and ask.
