After nearly seven-and-a-half years working in the military, most recently as a Search and Rescue pilot for the Royal Air Force, Prince William is quitting!

He’s a dad now and wants a more low-key life, so he’s going to work in the field of conservation, specifically saving endangered species. Whaaattt!?

His organization is called “United for Wildlife” and he’s the president of it. They will focus on the illegal wildlife trade, which we didn’t even know was a thing.

Oh wait, the Duke explains what that is.

“At the root of the illegal wildlife trade, for example, is the demand for products that require the deaths of tens of thousands of these animals every year, pushing them further towards extinction. We must work together to prevent this catastrophe and allow our children the opportunity to experience wildlife in its many beautiful and varied forms,” Prince William said in a statement.
