The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. - Mahatma Gandhi

Since nations are made up of people, we can also say that a man’s capacity for empathy can be judged by the way he treats animals!

Earlier this month, Rhino Conservation Botswana made an announcement that Prince Harry would be a patron of RCB. It was determined that he will help raise awareness of the plight both black and white rhinos face.

The organization's goal is to inspire and motivate people to take positive action.

His previous visits

For him, Botswana is a place where he feels he can truly be himself.

So, it didn’t come as a surprise when in August 2017, the pair went to Botswana on a safari to celebrate Meghan's 36th birthday.

Other charity activities of the prince

His work in Botswana is merely a continuation of what he does all around the world. Prince Harry spends most of his time supporting various charitable activities and projects.

He co-founded the charity Sentebale with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho to help the orphans in Lesotho. In 2009, he also co-founded The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry with his brother Prince William.

The foundation is aimed at giving support and guidance to disadvantaged young people and building awareness on sustainable development as well as the welfare of members of the armed forces and their families.

Prince Harry has supported Global Angels, Help for Heroes, National AIDS Trust, UNICEF, Walking with the Wounded, and many other charity organizations.

As Prince Harry spends time in Botswana trying to help animals in need, the words of Marc Bekoff comes to mind.

Let us remember that animals are not mere resources for human consumption. They are splendid beings in their own right, who have evolved alongside us as co-inheritors of all the beauty and abundance of life on this planet.

We wonder why Meghan didn't join him this time, but whatever it is, we wish him a great time.
