If I say "a habitat loss" with article "a", is it okay?
Unfortunately no. This sounds odd in English and it does not need an article for the sentence to be complete. Even though articles are really important in English, they are not always needed. We do not usually use articles when the noun refers to things in general; in this case, the Galapagos turtle's habitat. We also do not use articles when discussing sports, names of countries and places (such as a street, city, or building), and names of languages. Ex: She hates cheese. Ex: Dogs are fun pets to have. Ex: I don't want eggs for breakfast, I want pancakes. Ex: She is from Russia. Ex: I used to play basketball. Ex: He lives on East Thomas Street. Ex: I have always wanted to see Mt. Fuji.
