TAF plastic campaign at Larvotto Beach

TAF plastic campaign at Larvotto Beach

The Monaco charitable association The Animal Fund (TAF) is holding a Plastic Pollution Campaign in collaboration with Centre de Sauvetage Aquatique de Monaco (CSAM) and the École Bleue on April 1, from 10 am to noon.

The event at Larvotto Beach will be fun for young and old, the organisers say, with games and puzzles to raise awareness about plastic pollution and how to help save our oceans.

Monaco resident Berit Legrande founded the non-profit The Animal Fund in 2015 with a mission to protect, save and actively assist dolphins and whales that are victims of maltreatment, slaughter, pollution and overfishing.

With her team of individuals from different cultures, backgrounds and work experiences, TAF is united in educating others of the danger and consequences of cruelty and extinction but to also report on progress made.

“It’s not just the whaling or dolphin industry that those beautiful mammals have to protect themselves against,” Berit, a Dane who competes for the Monaco water ski team (and has her blackbelt in jiu-jitsu) told Monaco Life: “It’s indeed also pollution, climate change, loss of food sources, toxic substances and digesting of tons of plastic. What is there to be seen in nature if we ruin it all? And what will be left in a few years for our children?”
