Asian Elephant - The elephant is a revered and respected animal by Asian cultures, adorned and included in religious events and festivals. But despite this great respect for the animal, WWF have listed the Asian Elephant as an endangered species. WWF website explains that the Elephant’s ancient migratory routes and habitats have been severely disrupted by expanding human populations. Remaining populations consist of small fragmented groups that are still under threat from poaching for ivory, meat and hides. I decided to create this image to add to a series on endangered species and highlight the challenges that face the future of this magnificent creature.

Mac Tíre - Mac tíre is the Irish word for ‘Wolf’. It’s literal translation is ‘Son of the country-side’. Wolves once roomed as wild animals in the Irish countryside but were sadly hunted to extinction.
