Our royal hope

Britain’s youngest heir may not be able to sit up yet, but there’s already a lot riding on him.Coyote - royal

Prince William stated in a recent interview that he hopes his firstborn son, George, will grow up to have a love of wildlife and be mindful of conservation.

We certainly hope for that, too. While not everyone agrees with the base concept of a monarch, young Prince George will be on the world stage for his entire life and his voice will carry far and wide. We just hope that his voice has a different tone than his father’s.

The Duke of Cambridge has begun sponsoring and supporting wildlife conservation groups. That’s great. However, he is victim to an old ideal: hunting is part of conservation. Killing animals does not help save them. Nature has its own way of balancing populations and it is not up to us to decide who should live and who should die.

We’re looking forward to the day that Prince George can visit Canada, see our beautiful wildlife and when he can line them up, take aim… and shoot a picture.
