Prince Charles warns of ‘dire’ poaching crisis

The Prince of Wales delivers a speech highlighting the urgent need to protect endangered species from extinction, saying “there is not a moment to lose”.

The Prince of Wales said countries should take back the “ill-gotten gains” acquired through the illegal wildlife trade, comparing it to drugs and people trafficking.

“As many experts are telling us, if we ‘follow the money’ and take back organised crime’s ill-gotten gains, now done of course to combat trafficking in drugs, weapons and people, we can send a strong message to criminals that there are serious consequences when they kill endangered wildlife for profit,” the Prince said.

“Next month, I hope it will be possible to convene a meeting to encourage governments, banks, accounting firms, security agencies and others to make greater use of financial tools to tackle organised crime engaged in the illegal wildlife trade.

Charles’s comments came as he gave a major speech at a conference of world leaders gathered to tackle the threat to endangered animals like tigers, elephants and rhinos.

With his sons the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry by his side, the Prince told the summit that the scale of the poaching crisis had reached “unimaginable heights” in certain countries, and there was “not a moment to lose” to safeguard threatened species.
