Prince Harry has released this personal video taken during his summer visit to southern Africa. Here Prince Harry shares his story behind the video... "These baby rhinos are at an orphanage because their mothers were killed by poachers. I can’t say where this is for obvious reasons. But I spent an afternoon with Petronel Nieuwoubt who runs the orphanage. The youngest rhino was called Don. He was just two months old when he was found in Kruger National Park. Petronel has students and volunteers from all over the world come to look after these orphans. They pay for this experience and that money is used for milk, food, fencing and rangers for security."

Next, here's Harry hugging an elephant. Harry captioned this photo, "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."

"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.

It was over the summer that Harry saw the devastation and slaughtered animals, and he took action to protect those that are still living. He shared these videos and photos and is speaking out to save our wildlife.

Harry's mom, the late Princess Diana, would be so proud of her son for all he is doing. And we all are -- what a beautiful use of his time and money. We have to love, respect, and care for all of the world's creatures. And I will admit that seeing Harry being so kind and caring to animals who really need it is an added bonus.
