Prince Charles and Prince William have released a video with a plea to end the illegal killing of endangered species—such as elephants, rhinos, and tigers—in Africa. This is but the beginning of their wildlife campaign duties this week; later in the week they will attend a conference about it.
I am completely in agreement with them on their anti-wildlife-trade stance, and think what they are doing to call attention to this problem is great. What I don’t like is the fact that both Charles and William hunt for fun. William got some heat for going on a hunting trip the weekend before this big conference, but let’s not forget that Charles is an avid hunter as well.
I hate to pull focus from their work in trying to end the illegal poaching, because it is a serious problem that needs to end, but I would believe William and Charles more when they say how much they care if they stopped killing animals for fun. Again, the animals they hunt are not illegal, but they are still part of the wildlife that they are killing for no apparent reason.
PS. The comments are disabled for this video, I wonder why?
