On its effort to save the ocean, the Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco, through the leadership of HSH Prince Albert II de Monaco, is leading in its third year the Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean. International artists, celebrities, and philanthropists are gathering for this significant fundraising event to protect the ocean and make it sustainable. It aims to address the growing concern of ocean destruction, marine-life threats, ocean acidification, and plastic pollution.

The evening gala started last 2017 by the initiation of HSH Prince Albert II with the partnership of Mr. Milutin Gatsby, the Global Fundraising Chairman. The Royal Prince is ardent in championing the causes for terrestrial and oceanic preservation. He does numerous projects, including this Gala event to raise awareness through scientific, educational, and social campaigns.

For this year, the Gala will be honoring another Hollywood A-lister, Robert Redford. He has numerous contributions for raising awareness about the environmental issues and challenges about our planet. Issues such as climate change, need for clean air and protected space are on the agenda. Other top celebrities honored are Orlando Bloom and Leonardo di Caprio.
