Prince Harry Gets Up Close & Personal With Endangered Animals In South Africa — The Pictures May Shock You!
Tragically, over 30,000 elephants were killed last year for their tusks.
On Wednesday, the 31-year-old royal shared stunning moments from his trip on the Kensington Palace Instagram account.
Is there anything Harry doesn't do?!
In one photo of him laying on a sedated rhino (above), he remembered:
"After a very long day in Kruger National Park, with five rhinos sent to new homes and three elephants freed from their collars - like this sedated female - I decided to take a moment. I know how lucky I am to have these experiences, but hearing stories from people on the ground about how bad the situation really is, upset and frustrated me. How can it be that 30,000 elephants were slaughtered last year alone? None of them had names, so do we not care? And for what? Their tusks? Seeing huge carcasses of rhinos and elephants scattered across Africa, with their horns and tusks missing is a pointless waste of beauty."
