CODY, Wyo. (AP) - Prince Albert II of Monaco will be in Cody on Sept. 28 to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of his great-great grandfather's hunting trip with "Buffalo Bill" Cody.
He also plans to deliver a new scientific research grant supporting biodiversity studies in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
The prince is revisiting the area surrounding the hunting camp Prince Albert I of Monaco and Buffalo Bill established in 1913, near what is now Yellowstone National Park.
Albert I was concerned about deforestation and overfishing in ocean waters. In the 21st century, Prince Albert II wants to carry on the tradition with his scientific interest in the environment.
Six years ago, he created the Prince Albert II Foundation to protect the environment and encourage sustainable development.
