Day 2Prince William delievered a powerful speech urging governments around the world to protect endangered animals at the 3rd International Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade. "We know that we aren't moving fast enough to keep up with the crisis. Rhinos, elephants, pangolins, lions, they are still being killed in horrifying numbers," he said. "While we've made progress, the truth is we are still falling behind. A betting man would still bet on extinction." The Duke continued, "We can win this battle - And in doing so we can take a small but important step in reminding ourselves that we are capable of rising to the challenges of our age - a message that our young people need to hear loud and clear."
