This series seeks to draw attention to three incredible species, each being driven to extinction through humanity's voracious obsession with the body part I have depicted as on fire. I chose smoldering fire to symbolise a mode of destruction that could be stopped if we chose. The question is will we do so, before time runs out? The child represents the future generations. Dressed in her pyjamas, she will probably only ever 'know' these animals through bedtime stories and her dreams.
