Prince Albert II of Monaco will receive the Jane Alexander Global Wildlife Ambassador Award during this year's Indianapolis Prize Gala.

The monarch is an ocean conservationist, a philanthropist, and a five-time Olympian. In 2006, he established the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to raise funds and initiate action for ecological sustainability.

In 2019, the Principality of Monaco supported the conservation efforts of the 2021 Indianapolis Prize winner and seahorse champion Dr. Amanda Vincent.

"Prince Albert II is an inspirational leader at the forefront of protecting the health of earth's lands and waters, the variety of its plants and animals, and the development of renewable energies," Jane Alexander said. "It is a great honor to welcome him as the recipient of the Global Wildlife Ambassador Award for 2021."

The gala is scheduled for Sept. 25 in Indianapolis.
