The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just completed the wildest stop yet of their tour of India as they paid a visit to Kazaringa National Park to raise awareness about wildlife conservation efforts.
Prince William and Duchess Kate got up close and personal with some of the world’s most majestic animals as they took an open jeep tour Wednesday of the park located in on the northeastern state of Assam.
The royal couple appeared clearly delighted as they spotted rhino, water buffalo, swamp deer and variousspecies of birds.
“This is amazing,” Kate could be heard saying.
The duke and duchess also got even closer with wildlife as they paid a visit to the park's Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation, where they fed baby elephants and other animals.
The royal couple’s day was intended to draw attention to the plight of endangered animals, including the rare, one-horned rhinos.
About 2,000 of them make their home in the park, just about 1,000 short of those that exist overall throughout the world. The animals are under threat from poachers, who killed them for their horns.
Prince William, like his father, Prince Charles, is a major champion of wildlife conservation and efforts to protect endangered animals.
Duchess Kate and Prince William started their week-long visit to India and neighboring Bhutan over the weekend in Mumbai.
On Tuesday, the couple visited a boys shelter for street children in New Delhi before joining Prince Minister Narendra Modi for a private lunch in New Delhi. Their next stop is Bhutan.
