Cecil The Lion Lights Up The Empire State Building… The Reason Why Is Important.

The news of Cecil the Lion had the entire country feeling emotional last week, and now, some are focused on raising awareness about his case - and the cases of dozens of other endangered animals as well.

It's called the "Projecting Change on the Empire State Building," and it was created by Louie Psihoyos, the director who rose to notoriety after his brutal 2009 documentary, The Cove, which raised awareness about the dolphin-hunting industy.

Now, Psihoyos has set his sights on raising awareness for other endangered animals. See the projections below.

The images of these endangered animals are meant to start a conversation about animal conservation.

This isn't the first time Psihoyos did a project like this to raise awareness: In 2011, the Empire State Building was lit up in red, symboling the blood of the dolphins at the heart of his documentary, The Cove.
