The bright lights of New York City looked a bit different Saturday night, when endangered species images were splashed across the facade of the United Nations Headquarters.
A 30-story projection show co-sponsored by The Dodo told the story of climate change as it relates to animals, ahead of the UN Climate Summit. The projections "are a call to action on the most urgent issue of our times," Academy Award-winning producer Fisher Stevens said ahead of the event.
Professional racecar driver Leilani Münter kicked off the event by arriving in a Tesla fitted with a mobile projection unit.
Shawn Heinrichs, a cinematographer and diver featured in the film, told The Dodo that he hopes the event will prompt others around the world to host similar calls to action.
"This is just the beginning of events like this," he said. "This is a chain reaction that we hope will be lighting up around the world."
