Dive Deeper - Aim Higher - Fly Further 

 When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

This site tells the story of the exciting work that Four Elements is doing for the environment, why conservation and preservation is so important, and what you can do to help!

Aristotle 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 - 100 million sharks are killed every year, mainly due to shark finning (Sharkwater)
  • earth - rhinos - Over 1000 rhinos were poached in 2013, a 50% increase from 2012
  • 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
