WWF Spain.- A few days ago, the majority of the 250 members with voting right at the Spanish branch of the international charity World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) voted for requiring the King of Spain to abandon his position as President of Honour of the organisation.
The decision has been taken a few months after the Spanish monarch suffered an accidental fell during a safari while hunting elephants in the African country of Botswana.
The international charity, which aim is the protection of natural and animal resources, has decided that the activities of the King are not in agreement with the nature of the organisation.
Back in 1968, Juan Carlos I of Spain was one of the founder presidents of the association, which in Spain counts with more than 33,000 members.
