Over 4000 children painted and learnt with us during the broadcast


"We are not an endangered species ourselves yet, but this is not for lack of trying."

Douglas Adams. 1952 - 2001
Author of 'Last Chance to See'
Last Chance to See was a 1989 BBC radio documentary series and book. Written and presented by Douglas Adams (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy author) and zoologist Mark Carwardine. The project highlighted species on the brink of extinction. Mark Carwardine kindly gave his blessing for Last Chance to Paint to continue this education and inspiration.



By creating a piece of their own art they will really connect to the natural world



Children and Schools are invited to ‘travel’ with the Eden Project’s artist in residence, John Dyer and musician Martha-Lilly Dyer. We are exploring endangered plants, peoples, places and animals using visual art and music to connect children to these subjects in memorable ways so they become aware of what we stand to lose.



Using the internet and satellite links your children can ask questions before, during and after the expeditions.



Art is a universal language that can connect people and creates a reflective space for questioning and learning. We want children to not only ‘travel’ with us but to create their own piece of art inspired by our journeys to be exhibited in the WorldGallery.online alongside John Dyer’s art and art created by indigenous children from around the world.

Small changes by individuals can make a BIG difference to our planet.
How can your children make a positive difference today?

More Plants

Eat locally produced and in season fruits & vegetables. Swap meat for plant based 'meat' & 'dairy' products. Read the ingredients on products like cakes and biscuits and try to avoid products with palm oil in as that fuels rainforest and wildlife devastation and conflict.

Less Fish

If we ate less fish (wild & farmed) the world's oceans could start to recover. The large part of the plastic pollution in the ocean is from the fishing industry. Fishing nets kill marine life such as dolphins, whales, turtles and sharks and fish are also wild animals that need to be protected.
