The Duke has accepted an October invitation to talk on Chinese TV about the urgent need to protect illegal wildlife

He'll speak to an audience of millions of Chinese people of his generation on this important issue through 'Let's Talk' on CCTV1.

Full statement on 'Let's Talk' here: The Duke of Cambridge to deliver a speech on the illegal wildlife trade on Chinese television


The Duke of Cambridge to deliver a speech on the illegal wildlife trade on Chinese television

The Duke of Cambridge will deliver a speech on Chinese television on the urgent work needed to combat the illegal wildlife trade. The Duke's speech will be filmed in London in mid-October before being aired on CCTV1 – the station with the largest audience in China – as part of a series of programmes called Let's Talk.

The Duke is grateful to have this opportunity to explain how people around the world must work together to save some of the planet's most critically endangered species before they are lost forever. He considers this issue an important test for his generation's ability to solve the much more complex global challenges it will face in the decades to come. He was pleased to raise this issue with the President of China when they met in Beijing earlier this year and has been encouraged by China's willingness to play its part in the fight against the illegal wildlife trade.

Full operational details of the speech and of the other aspects of the Let's Talk programmes will be announced in due course.

Good for William to be able to do this. One of the reasons why I think he and Catherine will be involved with this year's Chinese State Visit in October.

Exactly! It seems most logical to have William continue building connections with China.

I think I will be very surprised if the Cambridges do not attend the state dinner during the Chinese state visit now. Seems that William really has some good relations building between the UK and China on the conservation angle.

As part of his ongoing campaign against the illegal wildlife trade, Prince William plans to make a direct television appeal to Chinese consumers.

William believes the speech, which will be shown on China's top-rated TV channel after being taped in London in mid-October, is a chance to widen the appeal of his fight for endangered wildlife.

The Duke of Cambridge, 33, wants "to explain how people around the world must work together to save some of the planet's most critically endangered species before they are lost forever," a palace spokesman said in a statement Monday. "He considers this issue an important test for his generation's ability to solve the much more complex global challenges it will face in the decades to come."

Prince William applauds the champions of Africa battling to save its endangered wildlife

Quote:
The shortlist of nominees for the celebrated Tusk Conservation Awards was announced today as the work of some of Africa’s leading wildlife campaigners was highlighted.

One of the recipients has already received notification of his award from Prince William before November’s ceremony.

Edward Ndiritu will be presented with the Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award for his outstanding work as head of the anti-poaching unit for the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.

The Duke of Cambridge wrote a personal letter of congratulation to Edward, thanking him for the “extraordinary contribution” he and his team have made protecting wildlife and increasing security in the north of the country.

Lewa has 72 black rhinos and 66 white rhinos – 13 per cent of the Kenyan population – and was the only conservancy not to lose any of the endangered animals to poachers last year.

Edward was praised for his exceptional strategic thinking and hard work in saving both wild animals and protecting farmers and their livestock from bandits and poachers.

Edward will be travelling to London in November to receive a medal specially crafted by jewellers Tiffany from Prince William.

The honour for wildlife rangers was created by Prince William as part of the annual Tusk Conservation Awards. The prince is patron of the British-based charity.

Tusk today revealed the shortlist for its other 2015 Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa. The nominees and are:

The Duke of Cambridge has issued a stark warning about the future of the rhino and elephant as he celebrated a leading conservation charity working to protect Africa's wildlife.

William said the endangered species were threatened with extinction within a few decades and that illegally hunting the animals for their horns or tusks was "barbaric".

His comments came as he gave the keynote speech at a fundraising ball marking the 25th anniversary of the organisation Tusk Trust which William has supported for almost a decade as royal patron.

The black-tie dinner was held in the sumptuous surroundings of Syon House, the home of the Duke of Northumberland, and among the 500 guests were Dragons Den stars Deborah Meaden, a Tusk Trust patron, and her guest Peter Jones and ex-dragon Theo Paphitis.

William greeted the Dragons then made them laugh when he said: "I've watched Dragons Den many times and seen you and your grilling sessions."

Singer Joss Stone entertained the guests and money was raised by an auction of luxury items and opportunities.

In the main speech William said: "The need to protect wildlife in Africa is greater than ever before. You'd have thought we learnt the lessons years ago in the great campaigns to 'Save the Whale' or 'Save the Polar Bear'. But sadly we haven't.

"The elephant and the rhino, among others, are going the same way and, unbelievably, will be extinct in the wild within a few decades, or even less."
He added: "The illegal slaughter of elephants and rhino for their horns is barbaric, and it's not stylish to be associated with it."

William has supported Tusk's work privately and publicly on many occasions.

The need to protect wildlife in Africa is greater than ever before, the Duke of Cambridge said last night, warning that, without action, we are signing the death warrants of iconic species such as elephant and rhino.

“You’d have thought we learnt the lessons years ago in the great campaigns to ‘Save the Whale’ or ‘Save the Polar Bear’,” Prince William said at a fundraising ball to mark the 25th anniversary of the Tusk Trust, a conservation group.

“But we haven’t. The elephant and rhino, among others, are going the same way and, unbelievably, will be extinct in the wild within a few decades, or less.”

Statistics revealed at the ball were shocking: 100,000 elephant slaughtered in the last three years - leaving a population today of just around 400,000, roughly half what it was in 1990.

On average, three rhinos a day are being poached for their horns, Charlie Mayhew, CEO and co-founder of Tusk said. The African lion now exists in just 1 per cent of its historic range, leaving a population of less than 25,000 and making it rarer than the rhino.

Prince William, a patron of the trust, is planning to appear on Chinese State television in October to address viewers about the illegal wildlife trade. China is a big market for ivory poachers.


The hard work of conservationists to prevent poaching in Africa will soon be honoured by the trust in its annual awards. The three finalists include Dr Mary Molokwu from Liberia, who has worked tirelessly in often difficult circumstances to successfully establish, develop and sustain academic forestry

Tusk was established in 1990 at the height of the last devastating poaching crisis, when both elephant and rhino were being slaughtered in their thousands to meet the demand of the wildlife trade-

It is really heartening to see the small seeds planted globally on this issue really starting to take root and grow as a global effort working together.

I'm willing to bet my last cashew that William's message to China coincides with the state visit from China to the UK in October.
