Príncipe Harry muestra sus fotos altruistas en Sudáfrica

Hoy Estado de México – Diciembre 3, 2015

A través de la cuenta de Instagram del Palacio Kensington, el príncipe Harry publicó imágenes de lo que fue su viaje a favor de los animales en Sudáfrica a mitad de este año.

Con la intención de concretar varios proyectos de conversación de especies, el miembro de la familia real pasó varios días en distintos puntos del continente para observar distintas situaciones de animales que fueron heridos por cazadores.

Al finalizar su excursión, ha decidido contar la historia detrás de cada imagen que ha publicado a través de Instagram en donde se muestran instantáneas conmovedoras así como otras impactantes con la intención de crear consciencia.

En una de los pies de fotos se lee:

Después de un largo día en el Parque Nacional Kruger, con cinco rinocerontes enviados a nuevas casas y tres elefantes alimentados he decidido tomarme un momento”, escribió en la foto que se le ve tirado encima de un elefante.

Prince Harry has released this personal photo taken during his summer visit to southern Africa. Here Prince Harry shares his story behind the photograph… “After a very long day in Kruger National Park, with five rhinos sent to new homes and three elephants freed from their collars – like this sedated female – I decided to take a moment. I know how lucky I am to have these experiences, but hearing stories from people on the ground about how bad the situation really is, upset and frustrated me. How can it be that 30,000 elephants were slaughtered last year alone? None of them had names, so do we not care? And for what? Their tusks? Seeing huge carcasses of rhinos and elephants scattered across Africa, with their horns and tusks missing is a pointless waste of beauty.” Photograph © Prince Harry

Sé la suerte que tengo por tener estas experiencias, pero escuchar historias de las personas que están aquí en malas condiciones, realmente me molesta y me frustra”.

 

Prince Harry has released this personal photo taken during his summer visit to southern Africa. Here Prince Harry shares his story behind the photograph… “By this point many people will have heard of ‘Hope’, a young female black rhino that was brutally wounded by poachers in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This was the second operation to try to save this animal’s life. Some poachers use a dart gun and tranquilize the animal so as to not have to fire a shot that would be heard. They then hack their face off while the animal is paralysed before running off with the horn. Local communities saw her stumbling through the bush and then alerted the authorities. Thanks to Dr William Fowlds and his team, Hope survived and is making a speedy recovery. I stared into her eyes while operating on her and thought at first that it would have been better and fairer to put her down rather than put her through the pain. Afterwards I was told of another female called Thandi who was in a similar state in 2012. She now has a baby calf called Thembi.” Every single rhino matters.
