As a new father, Prince William has said that he has become more protective towards wildlife and more emotional about his son. According to The Mirror, he even listens to wildlife sounds to relax, and is planning to surround Prince George with nature from the beginning. As he explains it:

“I feel a real protective instinct, more so now that I am a father, which is why I get emotional. The last few weeks for me have been a very different emotional experience – something I never thought I would feel for myself.”

In an interview with Max Foster, which also aired on ITV in the United Kingdom tonight, he opens up about his view of a world and how he first came to fall in love with Africa.

Earlier this week, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge attended the lavish inaugural Tusk Trust Awards. He also announced a new international collaboration, United For Wildlife, that would set seven different organizations into a think-tank to tackle environmental crises. According to the World Wildlife Fund, this coalition is to be run through The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
