Prince William calls for end to rhino poaching
The Duke of Cambridge has given a rare interview to speak out about the scale of poaching currently taking place across Africa - calling those who knowingly take part "extremely ignorant, selfish and utterly wrong"
Speaking exclusively to the BBC, he said that along with elephants, rhino are the most heavily poached animals in the world, with "two rhino currently killed each day in South Africa alone'.
Kate Silverton went to speak to Prince William at Port Lympne wildlife park as preparations were being made to relocate three black rhinos to Tanzania.
The Duke is Royal Patron of Tusk Trust, one of the groups involved in the relocation.
