The Maison de l’Amérique Latine de Monaco Dedicates Its 19th “Night of Latin America” to Peru

July 7, 2010 – Peru’s spectacular diversity, both biological and cultural, will be the centerpiece of this year’s Latin America Night, a gala hosted by Monaco’s Maison de l’Amérique Latine (www.amerique-latine.org) in the Sporting Monte-Carlo on July 23. The gala will be held in the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, who serves as Honorary President of the association.

“A Night of Peru” will celebrate the Peruvian government’s efforts to sustain Peru’s magnificent diversity into the future, through the work of the recently established ministry of the environment and the support of various Peruvian and international organizations.

Prince Albert, through the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation (www.fpa2.com), has shown his enthusiasm for Peru’s rich diversity by funding a three-year project of Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History (www.fieldmuseum.org), called Establishing new conservation landscapes in Amazonian Peru, which provides vital information to the government of Peru to support protection of vast forested landscapes. The proceeds of the gala will be dedicated to the collaborative work of Peru and The Field Museum in achieving lasting conservation in Peru.

It was on Columbus Day 2008, during his inaugural visit to The Field, that Prince Albert co-signed a Memorandum of Understanding between his Foundation and the Museum that underscores the relationship between the two organizations and provides for joint collaboration on projects, knowledge-sharing, and fund-raising activities and events in the fields of biodiversity conservation, climate change and water management issues.
