We all know that Prince William continues his fight against climate change for years. In 2013, prince William launched the awards and it was always a high point in his calendar. Because when he began his public life after completing his graduation, climate issue was one of the first patronages he chose. The royal returned to an in-person ceremony for the charity. Last year this event was conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prince William presented each of the winners with their awards. He also spent time with the winners and supporters. William said in his speech, “Earlier this evening I spent time chatting to the award winners and finalists. Their courage, determination, and commitment to African conservation is deeply humbling.”

He added, “As ever, it’s been fantastic to see their outstanding work on the big screen. These wonderful films really bring their powerful and inspiring stories to life.”

Then he continued, “Africa has been hard hit, as economies, jobs, and livelihoods have been devastated by lockdowns and travel restrictions. Many of the Tusk projects I have been lucky enough to visit have been hugely impacted, particularly where there is a dependence on tourism to underpin their conservation work. The work that Tusk does has never been more important.”
