A decrease in the predators or less competition between organisms


Predators are one of the main reasons for why there's a balance in the population of organisms. If, for example, there weren't enough lions then the number of zebras would be at an abundant amount.

Competition between organisms with finite resources can have an affect on carrying capacity. But if there weren't enough competition, meaning that there were a lot of resources to survive from, then the carrying capacity might increase.e
