Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said an enclosure at Sydney's Taronga Park Zoo would be named after the prince as part of a gift from the country. The government would donate 10,000 Australian dollars on the young prince's behalf toward a research project at the zoo to save the endangered bilby, a rabbit-like marsupial whose numbers are dwindling in the wild. The prince's name, when known, would be added to the bilby enclosure.
"I don't know if the Royal Family would need this, but we'll probably give them a free pass to Taronga Park Zoo as well," Rudd said.
