On December 4th, in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, an agreement was virtually signed between His Foundation and nonprofit ocean exploration initiative OceanX. Olivier Wenden, Vice-President and CEO of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, Ray Dalio and his son Mark Dalio, co-founders of OceanX, sealed the new partnership with the aim to develop marine conservation activities and support joint projects.
Our Common Goal
Ocean preservation is at the core of the missions undertaken by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation since its inception in 2006, from coral reef conservation to the development of Marine Protected Areas, the fight against plastic pollution and the protection of endangered species. Increasing awareness, education and knowledge on marine biodiversity are among the shared interests of the Foundation and OceanX, which is committed to exploring the ocean and bringing it back to the world through compelling media, with a goal of creating a global community engaged with understanding, enjoying and protecting our oceans.
OceanX’s innovative scientific research, media production and exploration vessel, OceanXplorer, allows scientific missions to discover the still unknown parts of the ocean.
The data collected from the surface to the seafloor will be of precious value for scientists to better understand and protect the ocean and its ecosystems threatened by human activities. The digital content that will be produced will be another important aspect of the partnership in the shared objective to raise awareness.
