The photographic exhibition of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation “Man – Wild Fauna: crossed destinies, shared territories” was inaugurated today at the Giardino dei Liburni. An exhibition capable of making us reflect on the future of the planet that has already been admired, with success, in Monte Carlo and in Rome, in the Campidoglio, where it has registered over 70,000 visitors.
The exhibition presents the most beautiful images of the International Environmental Photography Award of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundationor, to raise public awareness of issues relating to accelerated loss of biodiversity. More than 6,000 photographs were submitted by around 1,400 photographers from around the world to the competition. Images displayed in three categories: “Incredible wildlife”, “Wild nature in crisis” and “Reasons for hope”. The photographs illustrate the contrast between the beauty of wildlife and the terrible impact of human activities on natural habitats.
The objective of bringing out innovative proposals and concrete recommendations on the theme of a better consideration of fauna and territorial management is a priority for the overall well-being of the natural ecosystem. For this reason, the will of the Republic of this important initiative, born with the aim of hosting concrete projects in favor of a will to manage the interrelationships between wildlife and human activities, underlines a lot of attention and a great commitment at every level in terms of environmental protection, as well as a propensity to seek the widest international collaboration, also through the circuit of the small states of Europe as in the specific case of the Principality of Monaco, in support of these relevant issues.
Leaving the Republic of San Marino, the exhibition will continue its path of visibility also in other countries such as Spain, the United States of America, Singapore. During the period of stay at the Giardino dei Liburni, until next January 9, the exhibition will be open every day with free admission.
