Cecil the lion has been projected onto the Empire State Building to raise awareness about the plight of endangered animals. The lion, whose death at the hands of American dentist Walter Palmer last month sparked international outcry, was among a number of animals beamed onto the New York landmark as part of the event.

The entire, nearly four-hour video of the animal projections can be seen here on the Oceanic Preservation Society’s YouTube page.
