Future King Of Britain Visited Isiolo To Fight Poaching

The Duke of Cambridge was in Kenya to help raise awareness on the rampant poaching in the country.

Prince William has a soft sport for Kenya, after all, it is the location he chose to pop the question to his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

In his role as Royal Patron of wildlife charity Tusk and President of United For Wildlife, Prince William spent time at the end of March alongside northern Kenya's anti-poaching teams, lending his support to the frontline rangers dedicated to the protection of endangered elephant and rhino.

During the visit he met Edward Ndiritu, Head of Security at Kenya's Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Ndiritu was the winner of last year's inaugural Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award, which was presented to him by the Duke. The pair chatted during the Duke's trip to see Tusk's conservation work in the Lewa Conservancy.

"Without people like Edward, and countless other unsung heroes, courageously battling the war against poaching, we would be living in a world without elephants or rhinos," said the Duke.
