Updated: Mar 30, 2023

To celebrate the recent approval of the High Seas Treaty after ten years of negotiations, The Animal Fund (TAF) the Monegasque association that has been promoting for many years a fully respectful human attitude towards cetaceans, organises on the 24th March 2023 at 2 p.m. at the Yacht Club de Monaco a meaningful one-hour conference entitled "Whales: the eyes of humanity". The roundtable will be animated by Berit Legrand, founder of TAF, to gather some distinguished speakers, notably Alexandra Zeiner, biologist, scientist and researcher.

TAF is a loyal partner of the Monaco Ocean Week, being committed to reduce the plastic use in order to prevent marine litter to be accumulated in the oceans. In 2022, the focus was on Sustainable ESG Investment and New Fashion for the Planet while this years' insight will be devoted to encourage alternatives to plastic as for local stores and restaurants. This is in fact one of the main missions of the non-profit association, committed last year to stop the use of plastic bottles in a resort hotel chain set in the tropical islands. Moreover, the educational side is a must that The Animal Fund is being carrying on successfully throughout the year with the constant involvement of the next generation.
