Last Chance to See

Some years ago Douglas Adams wrote The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy , a story about the world being unexpectedly demolished by hideous creatures from another planet. It was meant as a joke... Now, animal by animal, tree by tree, the world is being demolished around us; not by Vogons, on other planets, Douglas decided it was time to think about the absurdities of life on Earth, and what we are doing to it. He teams up with zoologist and photographer Mark Carwardine, and together they set off around the world - to China in search of one of the rarest and most endangered animals on Earth.

In 1997 Douglas read his account of what happened on BBC Radio 4, and The Digital Village launched the Last Chance To See website to coincide with the show.
