United For Wildlife is formed by Prince William to Conserve Wildlife

United For Wildlife
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge has formed a new wildlife conservation foundation: United For Wildlife. The foundation will collaborate with seven of the world’s most influential conservation organizations: Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International, International Union for Conservation of Nature, The Nature Conservancy, Wildlife Conservation Society, WWF UK and the Zoological Society of London - in a new partnership to combat illegal wildlife trafficking. “The threats to our natural heritage are extensive, but I believe that this collaboration of the best minds in conservation will provide the impetus for a renewed commitment and action to protect endangered species and habitats for future generations,” said the Prince, who is the president of United for Wildlife.
Through his Foundation, His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge has brought together an unprecedented collaboration between seven of the world's most influential conservation organisations and the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The partnership, named "United for Wildlife", is a long-term commitment to tackle the global challenges to the world’s natural resources so they can be safeguarded for future generations.

The partnership between Conservation International, Fauna & Flora International, International Union for Conservation of Nature, The Nature Conservancy, Wildlife Conservation Society, WWF-UK, the Zoological Society of London and the Royal Foundation will lead the way to substantially increase the global response to major conservation crises.
It is very relieving and comforting to have the Prince form and head this new foundation. The Duke of Cambridge is known for his passion and love for wildlife. He has done much in helping to protect, conserve, save wildlife; and building awareness for wildlife conservation, for Africa in particular. In Prince William, Africa, Wildlife - the endangered ones in particular - indeed, have a true and real friend.
