Taking care of his Royal duties, Prince William showed up at the Zoological Society in London on Wednesday morning (February 12).

The handsome Duke of Cambridge was in the house to give a speech to the United for Wildlife Symposium given that he’s the President of the United for Wildlife organization.

William shared, "I am delighted that our foundation has been able to provide an impetus for the creation of United for Wildlife. I cannot thank our seven collaborators enough for their hard work in getting us to this point."

"The forces that are currently destroying some of the world's endangered species are sophisticated and powerful. But this week, we are seeing the creation of an equally powerful alliance, coming together to help fight them.”

The Prince added, "The commitments set out today will begin to address the challenges of protection, enforcement and demand reduction. We will use our combined resources to ensure they succeed. But ours is not an exclusive partnership. It is my hope that you will all become part of United for Wildlife and the global alliance to stop illegal wildlife trafficking."
