Prince William and his father Prince Charles are true gentlemen.
But just because they drink tea does NOT mean they are afraid to fight battles they believe to be worth fighting for!
And one war that Prince Charles is especially itching to fight is the war on animal poachers! But not because he loves violence, but rather Prince Charles believes it is the only way!
Here's what Prince Charles said:
"We face one of the most serious threats to wildlife ever, and we must treat it as a battle – because it is precisely that. Organised bands of criminals are stealing and slaughtering elephants, rhinoceros and tigers, as well as large numbers of other species, in a way that has never been seen before. They are taking these animals, sometimes in unimaginably high numbers, using the weapons of war – assault rifles, silencers, night-vision equipment and helicopters."
Prince Charles believes that animal poaching is not only a serious matter, but an urgent one as well!
And his son Prince William is right there alongside his pop!
Here's what Prince William said:
"My fear is that one of two things will stop the illegal trade: either we take action to stem the trade, or we will run out of the animals. There is no other outcome possible."
This isn't the first time Prince William has lent his voice to an issue he believes is worth fighting for.
And we're assuming it won't be the last!!
