Build a life-saving ark with Neil Gaiman

Average sea levels have risen a whopping 3 inches in the past 25 years as a result of global warming. If you had to save all of the species living on earth from rising sea levels, how would you do it?

Bestselling writer and creator Neil Gaiman's work crosses genres and reaches audiences of all ages. His magical stories transport you from our home planet Earth, to some of the most far-reaching realms you could ever imagine! Now it's your turn to create your own adventure.

Your mission is to think about how you would build your own ark to keep animals safe from rising sea levels.

  • Design or describe your ark in detail. What will it look like? Who would be on it?

  • You could write, draw, dance or even sculpt your ark.

  • Take us on an adventure! Tell us where your ark would go.

Step one: Create a list of all the species you'd like to put on your ark. Once you've decided, it's time to get creative. Write, draw, dance or make your ark — the medium is up to you!

Step two: Click here to upload your completed idea to our dedicated platform.

Step three: Some of the best entries will be selected to win a prize — wait to find out if you are a winner.
