Abstract : Who is responsible for the extinction of game in the Corsica hinterland ? The European cereal growers suspected of poisoning thrushes and woodcocks ? The French State sterilizing partridges to eradicate caterpillars ? The “citizens” of Bastia or Ajaccio with their polluting four-wheel drive ? Italian tourists who frighten away the woodpigeons to prevent them from landing on the chesnut groves ? The next town neighbours with their spring battue and counter-battue ? The village youngsters who discharge their rifle into anything ? In the insular imagination carried by the last representatives of traditional hunting, the rarefaction of species is conveyed into a real conspiracy theory. At the origin of the “denaturation” of the island, received as a premonitory sign of a cultural apocalypse, one always find the other one.Keywords : environment, wildlife, cultural apocalypses, hunting, conspiracy theory.
