Prince Harry wrote a letter to members of his African Parks foundation. He admitted that being a father made him more determined to protect nature for future generations.
“Since becoming a father, I feel even more pressure to give our children the future they deserve. So that this future is not taken away from them and is certain of possibilities.” – wrote the 35-year-old prince. “I want us all to be able to tell our children that yes, we knew it was coming, but thanks to the determination and help of incredibly dedicated people, we have done everything possible to restore these essential ecosystems.” – we read. The president of the organization further noted that we are currently dealing with the extinction of various species and a global pandemic “stopped the world”. “In the case of an extinction crisis, the science is clear: we may have a decade to correct this course before we lock the lock on our fate.” – we read. “Regarding the pandemic, while there is still much uncertainty, some evidence suggests that the origins of the virus may be related to our exploitation of nature.” – he explained.
The Duke of Sussex has a long-standing commitment to environmental protection. He spent the summer of 2016 working with African Parks. During this time he dealt with, among others: transporting 500 elephants. He then explained that he wanted to have experience in this area, and it would be best to gain it “first-hand”.
Already in September 2019, Harry said in one of the interviews that “wants to restore the balance between people and nature”. – This is what allows me to fully understand and appreciate my stay in Africa. Nature teaches us the importance of a system, one in which nothing is wasted and everything has a role to play. If we interfere with it and do not work with it, the system will be destroyed, he emphasized.
