Unprecedented fires ripped across Kangaroo Island’s precious landscape on January 3, 2020. Margi Prideaux and her husband lost their home and farm on that fateful day.

FIRE carries a message from a small community to the world. ‘We have experienced the beginning of the climate change curve and we cannot bequest this hell to future generations.’
