Photos of Endangered Animals projected on Empire State Building
The NYC landmark Empire State Building, known for its stunning light displays, shined brightly with digital light projections of the world’s endangered species Saturday evening. The show was billed as a first-of-its-kind live video projection and aimed to raise awareness about animals at risk of being lost forever. The display, a project conceived by “The Cove” filmmaker Louie Psihoyos, showed a looping reel of endangered animals over a 33-floor span of the southern face of the Empire State Building. In all, 160 species were shown, including a snow leopard, golden lion tamarin, birds, snakes, manta rays, and various mammals and sea creatures.Open this photogallery >

Suspected MH370 Debris Found
Malaysia is “almost certain” that plane debris found on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean is from a Boeing 777, the deputy transport minister said on Thursday, heightening the possibility it could be wreckage from missing Flight MH370.
Malaysia Airlines was operating a Boeing 777 on the ill-fated flight, which vanished without a trace in March last year while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history. The plane was carrying 239 passengers and crew.
The Killing of Cecil the Lion
A Zimbabwean court on Wednesday charged a professional hunter with failing to prevent an American from unlawfully killing 'Cecil', the southern African country's best-known lion, in a case that has triggered widespread revulsion at trophy hunting.
The American, Walter James Palmer, a Minnesota dentist who paid $50,000 to kill the lion, has left Zimbabwe. He says he did kill the animal but believed the hunt was legal and that the necessary permits had been issued.
Drone shows Nazi concentration camp
A few years ago I went to a music festival in Warsaw, Poland, but the festival was canceled due to a scam from the promoters. So, we had to make other plans for this trip. We booked a train journey to Kraków and went to the Auschwitz concentration camp. Sure the most impressive place I ever visited. All the horror that happened there in the buildings and on the fields. Indescribable and unimaginable. This aerial footage from a drone shows what it looks like today.Read this topic >

Creeping Vines: More of the abandoned Chinese Fishing Village
We already featured the abandoned Chinese fishing village that was swallowed by nature in our blog, but those were kind of old pictures. Photographer Damir Sagolj also visited this village and came back with this pictures.
Just a handful of people still live in a village on Shengshan Island east of Shanghai that was once home to more than 2,000 fishermen. Every day hundreds of tourists visit Houtouwan, making their way on narrow footpaths past tumbledown houses overtaken by vegetation. The remote village, on one of more than 400 islands in the Shengsi archipelago, was abandoned in the early 1990s as first wealthy residents then others moved away, aiming to leave problems with education and food delivery behind them.
