Endangered species native to the desert region have not only come to life in the city’s latest public art piece; they’ve come alive in a larger-than-life mural.

The 60-by-10-foot “Endangered Species” mural by artists Roger Peet and Jesus “Cimi” Alvarado features five endangered species native to the Chihuahuan Desert: ocelot, Aplomado falcon, Mexican gray wolf, Chiricahua leopard frog and Sneeds pincushion cactus.

The artwork at the El Paso Convention Center Plaza’s pedestrian pathway in Downtown is the latest of 15 nationwide installations by the Center for Biological Diversity. The national nonprofit is dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.
