We were delighted to read that Prince William is to spend the next few days travelling across Namibia, Kenya and Tanzania in his capacity as the president of the United for Wildlife conservation group. The trip is a precursor to the 2018 Illegal Wildlife Trade conference in London on the 11th – 12th October which will bring global leaders together in a discussion on how to better protect the world’s wildlife and endangered species 🌍
