Prince William helps animals - level 2

Prince William helps animals - level 2

26-09-2013 14:00

Prince William, David Beckham and Yao Ming, who is a top NBA star, are helping animals--rhinos and elephants, specifically.

Poachers kill many rhinos for their horns and many elephants for their ivory. The horn and ivory are then sold to China or Vietnam, for example.

The three gentlemen are trying to stop people who buy these products. The men have made two public video messages which will be shown in Vietnam and China.

We cannot see the video messages yet. We must wait until November.

Difficult words: poacher (person who catches animals), horn (sharp and hard thing on an animal's head), ivory (hard white material taken from elephant's tusks-"horns").

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
