LONDON — Prince William wants you to play Angry Birds. The prince, second in line to the throne, launched an online tournament on Monday for a special version of the viral game to raise awareness about illegal poaching.

The "Roll With the Pangolins" game was created in conjunction with William's United for Wildlife charity. William said that by playing the game — which features animated Pangolins — "you could have some fun while learning more about" the scaly, highly-endangered species and the "wider issues of poaching."
