Douglas Woodring, a former member of the University of California at Berkeley men’s swimming team, was awarded the 2018 Prince’s Prize for Innovative Philanthropy by Prince Albert last week for his work in ocean protection and global plastic pollution issues, the student newspaper The Daily Californian reported on Monday, February 5.

The goal of the Prince’s Prize is “to highlight projects and initiatives that have triggered innovative activity in the field of philanthropy, seeking out individuals that inspire others and demonstrate strong impact or potential impact.”

According to the newspaper, Woodring is the founder and managing director of Ocean Recovery Alliance, a registered nonprofit organisation founded in 2010 and based in Hong Kong and California.

Ocean Recovery Alliance is one of the few nongovernmental organisations that has worked with both UN Environment and the World Bank.
