Duke wants to stop illegal wildlife trade 'catastrophe'

The Duke of Cambridge said:

The threats to our natural heritage are extensive, but I believe that this collaboration of the best minds in conservation will provide the impetus for a renewed commitment and action to protect endangered species and habitats for future generations.

At the root of the illegal wildlife trade, for example, is the demand for products that require the deaths of tens of thousands of these animals every year, pushing them further towards extinction.

We must work together to prevent this catastrophe and allow our children the opportunity to experience wildlife in its many beautiful and varied forms.

– William, Duke of Cambridge
