Where Did All the Animals Go? is an art and environmental education project with drawing, one of the oldest forms of communication, at its core. The project gives children and wildlife a voice.
Education is key to reversing the biodiversity crisis. Founded by Artist, Jane Lee McCracken to share her passions for drawing and wildlife, and in partnership with international wildlife charity Born Free and a dynamic group of North East teachers, this grassroots project provides, through art, environmental education to the community. The next exhibition and endangered species conference will be held in 2021. Alongside these events, education resources and outreach workshops are being planned to give more children and communities outwith the UK, the opportunity to learn about and draw vulnerable species, nurturing compassion and collective responsibility for wildlife.
