Fresh off of celebrating his one year wedding anniversary to Kate Middleton Sunday, Prince William is said to beslated to help highlight the problem of animal poaching in Africa by taking part in an anti-poaching project and documentary. Prince William is “furious” about the “senseless slaughter” of Max, a hand-reared rhinoceros who was killed last year by poachers at a wildlife preserve in Kenya.

The 29-year old royal’s friend, adventurer and British TV presenter Ben Fogle, told The (London) Sunday Telegraph, “I am hoping to work with William on an anti-poaching project and documentary. I was lucky enough to go out to Botswana with him a few years ago, so it would be nice to do more with him. We’re both vehemently passionate about stopping poaching.”

Prince William has long been interested in conservation. In 2001, he began assisting with the Lewa Wildlife Preserve conservation project, located in central Kenya. The 29 year old royal became so moved by his work there that he became a patron of the Tusk Trust charity.

After last week’s London screening of “African Cats,” a film about Kenya’s wildlife, the prince spoke out about endangered animals, saying “Films like African Cats remind us of the dramatic beauty, and the harshness, of the natural world – and there is nowhere more awe-inspiring or beautiful than the vast plains of Kenya’s Maasai Mara. Africa’s natural heritage is the world’s natural heritage. We have to preserve places like this – not just for us, but for future generations. We must act now, coherently and together, if the situation is to be reversed and our legacy – our global, natural legacy – preserved. Tomorrow will be too late.”

    Patty Kuhner, His father is a first rate conservationist. You may want to read some of the things he has done because his important deeds are sometimes lost in the tabloid. The fact that he cares so much for our world doesn’t sell magazines.

    Maybe the future King of England can make a difference in this tragic reality. Good luck, Prince.
