    The British royal couple are in India for a seven-day tour that also includes a trip to neighbouring Bhutan. They’ve already visited Mumbai, and were to travel later Tuesday to a wildlife park in the northeastern state of Assam that is home to various endangered animals.

    They’re visiting Kaziranga National Park specifically to focus global attention on conservation. The 480-square-kilometre (185-square-mile) grassland park is home to the world’s largest population of rare, one-horned rhinos as well as other endangered species, including swamp deer and the Hoolock gibbon.
