The Duke of Cambridge has called for action following a rise in rhino poaching in Kenya. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy - where Prince William proposed to Kate in 2012 - has reported that since the beginning of December five black rhinos have been killed at the reserve for their horns.
A St. James’s Palace Spokesman said: “Species conservation is something The Duke feels passionate about. He has been keeping a close eye on the poaching crisis, particularly involving Africa’s rhinoceros and elephants, and is alarmed by the increase in the numbers being illegally killed.
"Through his Patronage of Tusk and support of other conservation charities, The Duke will continue to take a close interest in the CITES process and use his position to highlight the need to harmonise the conservation of Africa’s wildlife with the needs of human beings.
“The Duke is concerned that action must be taken now to stem the tide before it is too late and these magnificent creatures become lost to the wild forever."
