In 2009, Ignacio started working on his series, “Save the Forest,” using his work to address environmental issues. In this series, he attempts to motivate the viewer to take action for the sake of the natural world, even if only in a small way.
In 2010, he started working on his series of "Dreams with a better world", where he used hallucinatory, dreamlike imagery to visualize a fuller, more robust planet;
Salinas hopes for a day when society as a whole wakes up to the dangers it has caused the forests of the world, and his work is meant to inspire others to make his dream a reality
