During Monaco Week Sydney, held to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of Diplomatic Relations between Monaco and Australia, the Embassy of Monaco and the Honorary Consulate in Sydney jointly organised an exhibition on the topic of the Prince Albert II Foundation.

The exhibition, which opened on September 19, aimed to raise awareness among the Australian public of the Prince Albert II Foundation and its activities, and was held over a week on the campus of the University of New South Wales.

At its inauguration, HE Ms Catherine Fautrier, Ambassador of Monaco in Australia, and Professor Tim Flannery, a member of the Board of the Albert II Foundation, presented the scope of the Foundation’s work, which includes a collaboration between the Principality and Australia for a number of years on topics relating to the protection of the environment.

The Prince Albert II Foundation and the Monaco Scientific Center are providing their support and expertise to the TARA PACIFIC expedition, which studies the impact of climate change on the oceans and marine biodiversity.

In the field of environmental protection, the “Monaco Explorations” campaign, recently launched in the Principality, will also study the interactions between species and the impact of man on marine biodiversity. The YERSIN is due to cruise off Australia at the end of 2018.
