Five euros were donated to the Oceanographic Institute for each of the OCEANO shirts, in the colours of the Mediterranean coast, that have been sold. A total of €20,245 was raised in support of the Institute’s activities.

“We were proud to wear this symbolic shirt and to have had the opportunity to carry out this unique project with the Museum’s staff. We hope it will have raised awareness of the need to protect the Ocean. We will certainly continue to monitor and support the Institute’s efforts on that front,” said Thiago Scuro.

A shared commitment

Since last year, AS Monaco and the Oceanographic Institute hve joined forces to raise awareness about the protection of the Ocean and its biodiversity. This has resulted in a number of actions being taken.
