Prince William Feeding Rhino

Prince William recently visited the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Port Lympne, England to meet staff and rhinos involved in a translocation project. Three captive born black rhinos were translocated to Mkomazi National Park in Tanzania where it is hoped that the reintroduction of the endangered species to the wild will encourage breeding programs. The Aspinall Foundation and the Tusk Trust, of which William is a royal patron, and the George Adamson Trust were responsible for the translocation of the rhinos.

“Along with elephants, they’re two of the most heavily poached animals currently in the world,” William told the BBC’s Kate Silverton. “If we don’t do something about them, it’s going to be a tragic loss for everyone.”

We at Eye Help Animals couldn’t agree with Prince William more, which is why our third collection of Wild life Eyes will include the Black Rhino. Watch for the third collection coming soon and join Prince William in saving black rhinos!
