Illuminating Endangered Species during the People’s Climate March

Lights will quite literally shine upon endangered animals at United Nation Headquarters this weekend. On the eve of the People’s Climate March in New York City ,  the Oceanic Preservation Society is planning to project larger-than-life sized images of endangered species to raise social awareness. The project, titled “illUmiNations,” will be difficult to miss as colorful images of animals will light up walls and buildings at 8 pm on Saturday. According to the World Wildlife Fund, at least 10,000 species go extinct every year – often due to the effects of climate change and habitat loss. As thousands of people from across the country gather this weekend to promote global sustainability policies, it is important to be cognizant of both the human and non-human animal lives who suffer when their environments are attacked.
