Vast numbers of animal and plant species have gone extinct via human intervention, many through consumption. Hell, we nearly lost the goddamn bison, one of the greatest natural resources of this continent.

Very many human populations have lost almost their entire resource base (agricultural land, building materials, animal resources, everything) due to human intervention. Easter Island is one, Anasazi seems to be another, there are many many more examples. The story of populations catastrophically running out of resources is as old as the species.
