Target: Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
Goal: Commend Prince William for his collaboration in conservation efforts
During an awards ceremony that honored wildlife conservationists, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, announced that he would be collaborating with seven conservation organizations to reduce illegal wildlife trafficking. His contributions will be especially significant, and the prince stated that he is motivated to pursue these efforts because of his son George.
The seven groups that are a part of the collaboration are 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. The collaboration has been named United for Wildlife. The prince understands that tens of thousands of wildlife are killed for trafficking purposes, bringing them to the brink of extinction. Both the Duke and Duchess Kate Middleton wish for their son George to see rhinoceroses in the wild, and realize how great of a loss it would be for the African people to lose such marvelous wildlife in their backyards.
United Wildlife will start with by curbing and reducing the illegal trafficking trade, although this will be a difficult task. The trade is estimated to be worth $20 billion. However because of the Duke’s support, it is believed that a significant change will take place. With a baby in tow, the Prince no doubts wonders what sort of world he will be leaving his son George when he passes on. The Duke is scheduled to shoot a public service announcements targeted at China and Vietnam. The videos speaks of illegal wildlife products, and in China and Vietnam products such as rhino horns and elephant ivory are in high demand.
Commend Prince William for his contribution and taking a stand against the illegal trafficking trade. His efforts will no doubt be significant and help citizens around the world appreciate the wildlife around them.
Dear Prince William,
I am writing this letter to commend you for your efforts to curb the illegal wildlife trafficking trade. It warms my heart to know that you care about wild life and wish for these animals to be around when your son grows up. I hope that the collaboration with the seven organizations will be successful. Tens of thousands of animals dying to supply our products is a criminal and dark deed. Animals shouldn’t be killed in such droves and I am glad you feel this way.
Please continue with your conservation efforts, and I hope you instill this passion into your son when he grows up. The world needs to understand that this planet is home to millions of species, not just humans.
[Your Name Here]
