Prince Harry shared a series of moving photos from his trip to Africa this week, showcasing efforts to help animals and stop poaching across the continent.

ABC News reported that some of the photos shared on Instagram showed Harry, 31, tending to elephants and rhinoceroses.


"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," he wrote.


Harry was introduced to Africa as a young boy, during a 1997 trip with his father, Prince Charles. He previously dated Zimbabwean Chelsy Davy, which also saw him travel south frequently.
 



 

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.
