In 2022, the British branch of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, under its President HE Evelyne Genta, worked on numerous projects, including the ‘Cambridge Conservation Initiative Collaborative Fund for Conservation’ run by Cambridge University, ‘Satellite Monitoring of High Seas Fisheries’ at the Oxford Martin School, ‘Creating a Protected Swimway for the Endangered Sharks of Galapagos’ with the Galapagos Conservation Trust, ‘Securing a Sustainable Future for the Guinean Forests’ run by BirdLife International, and Imperial College’s ‘Cleantech Innovator Programme’.

While the second phase of the Natural History Museum’s ‘Plants under Pressure’ initiative ended in March 2022, support for a new project was endorsed, that led by Fauna & Flora International entitled ‘Scaling-up Marine Conservation and MPA Management Across Cambodia’s Coast’.

On 5 November, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco visited Cambridge for the centenary dinner of the Scott Polar Research Institute, a research centre for the polar regions and world glaciology, and long-term partner of the Foundation. The Institute and the Foundation are currently working on a project studying the Antarctic polar ice sheet
