Wild animals have had a high profile week in the news, including the outrage over Cecil the lion, who was killed in Africa by an American hunter, and President Obama’s announcement about new restrictions on the sale of African elephant ivory. The week will culminate in an unprecedented light show projected onto the side of the Empire State Building in New York Saturday. Despite its timing, the show has been in the works for years. It will feature pictures of endangered animals, including a snow leopard, a golden lion tamarin and other mammals along with snakes, birds and sea creatures. The images will cover 33 floors of the landmark building. The event is meant to draw attention to the animals’ plight. — Read it at The New York Times
