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.

William has written another article (this time for the Financial Times) about poaching:

The illegal wildlife trade is the elephant in the room - FT.com

Very well written!

What a wonderful article that clearly shows William's passion for this cause. I've been recently taken to task in another thread stating that I give far too much credit to William for getting President Obama and President Xi Jinping on board working for this global effort and this article has just made me stand firm behind my conviction even more.

Well done William!

Prince William: How Would I Explain to My Kids if Rhinos and Elephants Went Extinct?

With the world facing myriad challenges, Prince William has explained why he is so passionate about helping wildlife.

The royal wrote an op-ed published Sunday in the U.K.'s Financial Times in which he asks how leaders can convince the public there are solutions to complex global threats, such as terrorism or climate change, if they can't begin by saving some of our planet's endangered animals. The piece comes alongside an investigation made by the paper highlighting the trade in animal parts in Africa.

As head of the United for Wildlife coalition, William, 33, has met with President Obama and President Xi Jinping of China in the last 12 months. Now, those leaders have agreed to act together in the fight.

"I cannot imagine what it would feel like if the last elephant or rhinoceros in the wild died – and I then had to explain to my children how we let it happen," writes the father of Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, 5 months.

That's the day before the state visit right? Clever.

Prince William will pull off a major coup on Monday when he records a TV programme to be seen by 100 million Chinese people.

The Duke of Cambridge will speak to his biggest ever audience in a programme for Chinese state television highlighting the threat to endangered species posed by the trade in illegal wildlife products.

His stock has risen so much in China since his successful official visit there in March that he was given free rein to choose his own topic for discussion, and his own guests, for an edition of Let’s Talk, a one-hour current affairs show on CCTV1, China’s equivalent of BBC1.

In stark contrast to his father, who has repeatedly snubbed the Chinese to make a point about human rights abuses in Tibet, the Duke has decided that engagement with the Communist country is the best way to bring about change.

This sentence is interesting: he was given free rein to choose his own topic for discussion, and his own guests, for an edition of Let’s Talk, a one-hour current affairs show on CCTV1,

Is it true? To me it just sounded like he would give a normal speech. But will it be a 1 hour program? Or is he just a small part of it?

^^^ I'm not sure. I think its for just a part of the program. One of William's guests is Bear Grylls. KP will be providing updates.

No matter how long the time slot is, I do really think William being allowed air time on Chinese TV is really a huge compliment to Wills and his work for United for Wildlife. Strong, diplomatic relationships have to start somewhere and China joining in United for Wildlife's efforts is a pretty good start in my book.

Oh I agree! I totally agree!! I think this is a huge thing! A great seal of approval in diplomatic standards I would say. I mean... he's gonna talk about animal rights, on government funded state tv in CHINA! That's BIG!

I was mostly wondering out of curiousity :P
