HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco inaugurated Project Ocean

The Perfect World Foundation’s Scientific Leader Jan Westin and Plastic Expert Bethanie Carney Almroth, together with divers and representatives from Sweden’s first Marine Recycling Centre. On the event site, at GKSS Långedrag, huge piles of ghost nets had been placed, representing the equivalent amount of plastic entering the Swedish West Coast on a daily basis, to literally mirror the problems we are facing. As part of the inauguration H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco released a rescued and rehabilitated duck back to the wild, found injured by a fishing hook in his beak.

Thank you Bethanie Carney Almroth

Thaks to, Gothenburg Botanical Garden

In the afternoon, His Serene Highness visited the Gothenburg Botanical Garden for a tree planting ceremony as a part of The Perfect World Foundation’s global tree planting project “Attenborough Forest”. A project named in Sir Attenborough’s honour as he planted the forest’s first tree in 2018. The Sovereign Prince planted an American smoketree, explained by the Botanical Garden’s botanist as a tree of the future.
