Principality to host first Pelagos Initiative Forum during Monaco Ocean Week

Various experts will come together during Monaco Ocean Week for the first ever forum on the Pelagos sanctuary, a Marine Protected Area in the Mediterranean.

The full day of round tables will take place on 21st March. It will give professionals in the area of marine mammal protection the chance to discuss the opportunities and challenges of the sanctuary and to reflect on common projects to contribute to its knowledge and protection.

Monaco Ocean Week, under the leadership of Prince Albert II of Monaco and his Foundation, provides a unique forum for discussions, meeetings, experimentation and opportunity.
