See the effects of global warming

HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco took part in an aquatic hike in the beautiful grounds surrounding the island of Badu.
Hoping for a few encounters with marine turtles and Dugongs, the Sovereign has instead seen the effects of global warming on Torres Strait coral reefs, which have suffered from severe and repeated bleaching episodes in recent years. A degradation that he will be able to testify to this week at the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) conferences in Townsville, Australia, where Monaco is co-chairing this year.
