Cecil the lion and other endangered animals (Including Wolves) are projected on to Empire State Building

The Empire State Building broadcast images of endangered animals to New Yorkers on Saturday in a video projection said to be the first-of-its-kind.

At one point an image of Cecil the Lion, whose death at the hands of an American hunter last month caused international outrage, was broadcast in a picture more than 350 feet tall and 180 feet wide.

In total 160 species of endangered animals including birds, tigers, leopards and bears were shown at the event, which was meant to spark conversations about mass extinction, according to NBC New York.

The images were put up over 33 floors of the building for three hours using 40 projectors stacked together at a rooftop two blocks away.

The landmark is decorated with lights of different colors for various holidays, though organizers said Saturday night marked the first time that such as video projection had been done. The show was organized as part of a promotion for a new Discovery Channel documentary, Racing Extinction, which is set to air in December.

  7. SIGN and SHARE my petition to Stop All Exotic Animal Trophies from Entering the United States. All of these trophy hunters must be stopped. I started this petition to Stop All Exotic Animal Trophies from Entering the United States after hearing about Cecil. The United States must close the loopholes that allow these people to bring their trophies home. Until we stop that, they will continue to kill this Earth's most exotic and endangered animals. FOR CECIL and ALL THE OTHERS,
    It needs 100,000 signatures August 27th.
