The United Kingdom’s Prince William has been told to “mind his own business” by critics after suggesting that population growth is endangering wildlife in Africa. Al Jazeera reports that 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. Some said that “to blame African civilians is to totally misunderstand African history”, others pointed out that the greater source of harm to the fauna on the African continent was European hunters in the early 20th century, and many suggested that a man who already has three children of his own should maybe not be telling others to have smaller families.
