The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Cambridge have created a video message urging people around the world to support organisations working to stop the illegal wildlife trade. The release of the video will begin a week of activities by The Prince and The Duke to highlight the devastating effects of the trade.
In the video they talk about the unprecedented levels of killing of endangered species like elephants, which are killed at a rate of 100 per day. They also highlight the grave threat the illegal wildlife trade poses to the economic and political stability in many areas around the world.
The video message is available to download for broadcasters for wide distribution. Simply visit our News Exchange, no password is needed.
