The Royal's conservation mission in Africa makes us like him even more

Prince Harry, everyone’s favourite royal (bar Prince George of course!) has left the Army after 10 years, and is in South Africa, working on conservation projects.

The 30-year-old visited Khulula Care for Wild, spending time with three adolescent rhinos called Mia, Manje, and Venus. He even mucked in, helping give two of the centre’s largest rhinos mud baths.

The Park offers an “African Conservation Experience”, where volunteers get an opportunity to help care for rhinos orphaned as a result of poaching.

The Royal has thrown his support behind the cause, working actively with anti-poaching units inside the park as part of a three-month conservation project.

His mission is to protect black rhinos and desert elephants in Africa from poachers and he’ll be shadowing conservationists across Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania and Botswana.

In November and December, he will open a Lesotho children’s centre and fulfil a “programme of engagements” in South Africa on behalf of the UK government.

His trip to South Africa is at the request of the Foreign Office, and while there he will represent the UK government.
