FORT MYERS, Fla. — A new mural calling for animal protection now sits in the heart of the River District. 

“It’s kind of eye-catching like when you drive as well,” artist Simone Eisenbeiss said. “And I think because of the animals and because of the details, people are more drawn to it.”

Eisenbeiss finished the mural on Black Friday, but the colorful designs have been turning heads for days.

“Small children stop by and they say like “mommy, mommy look! Animals! And look, save us!” It’s like they see as well that we need to protect our animals,” she said. And it’s interesting, people stop much more since I wrote the letters.”

Eisenbeiss added the message “Save Us” to the top of the mural as a call to action.

“Our environment needs every single creature to survive and to have a good biodiversity. I really quite hope that people stop by more and they rethink more and that I also have maybe more opportunities to talk to people with my art.”

Eisenbeiss said she hopes people who see the mural will keep the conversations going, and that someday in the future she’ll have the chance to spread her message through art even further.
