Princes of wildlife, Charles and William, speak against Wildtrade

February 13, 2014

“We have come together, as father and son, to lend our voices to the growing global effort to combat the illegal wildlife trade – a trade that has reached such unprecedented levels of killing and related violence that it now poses a grave threat not only to the survival of some of the world’s most treasured species, but also to economic and political stability in many areas around the world,” Prince Charles says in a video message with his son before high-level summit on the illegal wildlife trade in London on Thursday.

“Humanity is less than humanity without the rest of creation,” Prince Charles says.

Following his father’s statements Prince William says the wildtrade is immoral and he wants his children to be able to witness and know the animals, tigers, elephants and rhino, most hunted for this trade as he did when he was a child.
