Wildlife Myth in the Post-Truth Era

By Benoit Paille

We imagine that our planet is populated by lions, elephants, whales and penguins. That may be true of the National Geographic channel, Disney movies and children’s fairytales, but it is no longer true of the real world. The world contains 40,000 lions but, by way of contrast, there are around 1 billion domesticated pigs; 600 million cats and 1.5 billion domesticated cows; 50 million penguins and 20 billion chickens. – Benoit Paille
