Organized on the initiative of Prince Albert II of Monaco, this traditional charity event took place in the Principality for the third time. The purpose of the event is to raise public awareness for global ocean conservation efforts. Internationally renowned musicians energized the night for the privilege of the guests, and Masters of Ceremony Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman and Andy Garcia came on stage to present exclusive items of the exceptional auction. All proceeds from the Monte-Carlo Gala for the Global Ocean and its auction will support the initiatives of the fund of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco for the protection of threatened marine species, the mitigation of the impact of climate change and acidification on the Ocean, as well as fight against plastic pollution.
