seems to blame Africa's growing population for the threat to wildlife

Experts have predicted that Africa’s population is on course to double to 2.5 billion people by 2050, potentially making it home to more than a quarter of the world’s people by the middle of this century.

While some praised the prince’s comments as highlighting the peril faced by the natural world in the face of global population growth, others took to social media to criticise his remarks.

William is worse than his father and probably as bad as his grandmother and late grandfather
And these guys have the cheek to criticise Harry!

The increasing pressure on Africa’s wildlife and wild spaces as a result of human population presents a huge challenge for conservationists, as it does the world over.


This is an incontrovertible fact. That it was said by a rich white man, who is himself contributing to humanity's overpopulation crisis, about Africa, does not make it less true.

It's true about every continent on the planet, except Antarctica (so far). I think he facting said that too.

Humans are an invasive species. There's absolutely nothing so special about them that we need 8 billion of them. 25 million would be plenty. Ideally, restricted to carefully controlled reserves.

Look what happened in Ukraine after Chernobyl. Create a large area where humans do not go, and nature rebounds.
