Protect Our Wyldlife
This stunning artwork on the whole side wall of the buildings at 31 Thomas Street was created by London-based artist Jim Vision who runs a street art company called EndoftheLine based in Shoreditch. Completed in January 2020, “Protect Our Wyldlife” is his third giant mural located in the same position at the car park at the end of Thomas Street. It covered up the artist’s previous work, the popular “The Tiger” (LinkExternal link Manchester Evening News 6 April 2019) which was commissioned by Netflix in 2019 to promoter their eight-part nature series 'Our Planet' which was narrated by Sir David Attenborough

Like the previous mural, “Protect our Wyldlife” has an environmental message. The mural is a homage to woodland warriors and worriers alike; It features beautiful images depicting various woodland creatures alongside the teary face of a human. Set to the backdrop of a forest seemingly being engulfed by the orange mist and glowing embers of its background, “Protect Our Wyldlife ” implores us to take better care of our planet’s forests, habitats and wildlife (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) The Northern Quarters).
