Cody, Wyoming (CNN) - Prince Albert II of Monaco is in Wyoming.
The royal is visiting the city of Cody to help present a $100,000 scientific prize for bio-diversity.
He's not the first royal to visit the area....
His great great grandfather, Prince Albert the first, used to hunt with buffalo bill near Yellowstone over a century ago.
Albert the second is more of a conservationist.
One of the issues that concern the prince is global warming.
"Climate change is absolutely real and is happening. It will happen no matter what, and we have to find ways to mitigate that."
Prince Albert's foundation along with the university of Wyoming and the draper museum of natural history sponsored the scientific grant.
