Great...Just great. I've already become addicted to three different versions of Angry Birds on both the iPad and laptop and I now see there's about to be a fourth one.

Seriously though, this is an awesome idea to reach out to the plugged in Generation, not to mention those of us who just love the Angry Birds franchise. Really awesome idea.

That one bit of William playing the game and giggling...ROTFLOL!!!

The Duke of Cambridge will push for a “zero tolerance” approach to the trade in illegal wildlife parts when he makes his first visit to Washington DC next month.
The Duke, who has put wildlife conservation at the centre of his official duties this autumn, will stress that the trade in ivory, rhino horn and other body parts not only fuels the poaching of endangered species but is also inextricably linked to money-laundering and corruption.
Writing in today’s Telegraph, the Duke warns that “time is running out for some of Africa’s most magnificent creatures” as park rangers fight a “battle-like” war with heavily-armed poachers.

Prince William honours Africa's wildlife guardians - Telegraph
Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge has honoured leading conservationists who have dedicated their lives to protecting Africa's wildlife and its unique habitat.

At a glittering awards ceremony, the Prince presented two campaigners with trophies and substantial grants in recognition of their outstanding efforts.

The Duke is royal patron of the animal conservation charity Tusk Trust, which is behind the awards.

In a speech at the presentation ceremony, he said: "The people we celebrate tonight, the nominees and all those they represent, work in some of the remotest and harshest environments on the continent.

"They regularly put their own lives at risk for the sake of conserving some of Africa's rarest and most treasured species. Their unquestioning, selfless dedication to the cause is humbling, and I pay tribute to all of you

I really don't know how much it pertains to William's campaign for wildlife conservation but it has recently been announced that "the greatest show on earth" Ringling Bros. Circus will be discontinuing using elephants in their circus acts.

People are waking up and I'm tending to believe that perhaps William's efforts have played a part in all this.

Back in 2014 the Duke of Cambridge appointed former Foreign Secretary William Hague to be chairman of a task force on the illegal wildlife trade for the Duke’s umbrella organisation United for Wildlife, which brings together conservation groups from all over the world to share ideas and put pressure on governments and industry.

This article gives some insight into poaching and the challenges facing United for Wildlife.

The Duke of Cambridge joins those other giants of the environment movement, Sir David Attenborough and Dame Jane Goodall, as the leading Britons preventing many of our iconic creatures slipping into oblivion.

Other names on the Wildlife Power List published tomorrow are Springwatch presenter Chris Packham, Green MP Caroline Lucas as well a host of politicians, scientists, authors, bloggers and campaigners.

The list of Britain’s 50 “most influential conservation heroes” has been compiled by BBC Wildlife Magazine at a time when the struggle to protect species as well as the precious spaces they need for survival are coming under increasing threats at home and abroad.
