Animals light up the Empire State Building in architecture splash

Beautiful images of endangered species and of Cecil the lion whom authorities say was killed illegally by an American dentist on July 1, were projected on the south side of the Empire State Building on Saturday evening.

The one-day show, called Projecting Change, is part of a promotion for the upcoming documentary Racing Extinction, which is set to air on Discovery Channel in December. It was a fantastic way to celebrate the architecture of this important building and raise awareness on these endangered animals, generally killed by humans.
