VIDEO: Prince William Gives Inspiring Speech At International Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference!
Prince William hits the stage to give a speech at the 2016 International Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade during his a two day visit to Vietnam on Thursday (November 17) in Hanoi, Vietnam.
“The truth is we are still falling behind,” the 34-year-old Duke of Cambridge told delegates (via People). “A betting man would still bet on extinction. China has already signaled a total ban, the USA has instituted one, and other nations including the United Kingdom are considering it.”
“We know now what previous generations did not – ivory treated as a commodity is the fuel of extinction,” William added. “Ivory is not something to be desired and when removed from an elephant it is not beautiful. So, the question is, why are we still trading it? We need governments to send a clear signal that trading in ivory is abhorrent.” Watch the full speech below. . .
