Before you post pictures of your holidays on social media…

It’s summertime, pack your bags! I hope that (like me) you’re enjoying some holidays right now. But I bet that (like me), you won’t completely unplug from social media. You may be sipping a cocktail, feeling safe behind the screen of your smartphone. But what if I told you that a simple click, a simple photo posted on Instagram could, as a butterfly effect, be responsible for the death of an animal? What if it could lead to the destruction of natural sites, or to the displacement of people who lived there for thousands of years? Let’s think about it for a moment : how our actions in the virtual world impact the real one?
