An image of Cecil the lion is projected onto the Empire State Building as part of an endangered species projection to raise awareness. 

The unique display, on one of the world’s most recognisable structures, held on Sunday was aimed at sparking conversations about mass extinction.

A tiger is featured during the one-of-a-kind projection. According to latest figures, there are only 3,200 tigers in the wild.

A 106 metre image of Cecil, the famous lion killed in Zimbabwe earlier this month, whose killing has sparked international outrage, also appeared.

The bald-headed eagle also was listed in the projection owing to its endangered status.

Organisers said the event was a “first-of-its-kind” live video projection.

It drew huge crowds of spectators, who stopped to gaze at the display and capture their own pictures.
