The Tusk Trail is a lovely idea - I shall have to go into the city centre so that I can see some of the rhinos on display!
This would be a cute event to bring George and or Charlotte to (though George would have been at school today). William could take the children to see the different rhinos in London.

This would’ve been a great event to take the kids indeed.

I think this rhino trail idea is such an excellent one. If I was raising a family in the area, it would make for a pleasant family outing to go and find all the rhinos in and around the London area.

For those that may be interested in seeing the rhinos on display, I'm going to add a link to the map where they can be found. Wish I could do it myself.

All too often the role played by rangers goes unnoticed and their efforts receive little reward. Eager to provide them with a platform for international recognition, the charity Tusk launched the Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award three years ago as part of its annual Tusk Awards for Conservation in Africa – a move prompted by its Royal Patron, the Duke of Cambridge, who reiterated his respect for rangers in a speech to the Royal African Society. “Too many brave rangers are tragically killed each year by poachers,” he reflected.

Charlie Mayhew, Tusk’s CEO, said: “It’s typical of Prince William to want to shine a spotlight on the unsung heroes and rangers who are poorly paid and under-equipped but putting their lives on the line.” Potential loss of life was certainly faced by Obwona, the winner of this year’s Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award. Working on a joint operation with the Ugandan army, he would recover up to three guns a day from criminals.

The Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award (a grant of £10,000) will be one of three prizes awarded at a ceremony in London on Nov 8. The others are the Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa (£20,000), which is sponsored by Land Rover, and the Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa (for lifetime achievement, £40,000).

There was an auction tonight at Christie’s.

The #TuskRhinoTrail sculptures have raised an extraordinary £624,000 at #auction. We are incredibly grateful to our contributing artists, sponsors and buyers.

Every penny raised will go directly to support our conservation work in Africa. Thank you!

Major financial institutions have united behind The Duke of Cambridge’s mission to disrupt the illegal trade in wildlife products.

In an unprecedented move, global financial organisations will join together to sign the 'Mansion House Declaration' as part of United for Wildlife’s Financial Taskforce meeting on Wednesday 10th October, agreeing that they "will not knowingly facilitate or tolerate financial flows that are derived from IWT and associated corruption".

The Financial Taskforce is being convened by His Royal Highness through his charity United for Wildlife, which is run by The Royal Foundation. The Taskforce will be chaired by Lord Hague of Richmond, and will initially comprise of representatives from 30 global banks and financial organisations such as Standard Chartered, HSBC, RBS and Bank of America, and agencies and regulatory bodies including TRAFFIC and RUSI.

Prince William was praised by a UN official at the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference for being "a new kind of leader. He is not just passionate and emotional about it, but is also talking about the economics of this." #EndWildlifeCrime
