The name is inspired by Aristotle. He believed that our world was made up of four elements: water, earth, air and fire. We now know that the world is much more complex than this, but his four elements encapsulate my dream for the environment:

·        water - to dive deeper

·        earth - to aim higher

·        air - to fly further

·        fire - to pursue this with a burning passion

For each element I have chosen a symbolic animal that is under threat:

·        water - Sharks - 90% of the world's sharks may have been fished out, mainly for their fins

·        earth - Rhinos - in the first month of 2012 one rhino was killed each day in South Africa

·        air - Bearded Vultures - there are less than 100 nesting pairs left in Southern Africa

·        fire - those of us with a burning passion to make a difference - we are threatened by mass indifference
