We all know Leonardo DiCaprio as the star actor from “Titanic,” “Catch Me If You Can,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “The Wolf on Wall Street,” but the A-lister is just as keen on advancing animal and environmental protection initiatives in addition to his acting career. Just what we like to see!

In 1998, DiCaprio started up the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which has since been dedicated to “protecting the Earth’s last wild places and fostering a harmonious relationship between humanity and the natural world,” according to the organization’s website.

The foundation works to provide grants for conservation projects that will help protect tigers and sharks from extinction and save the world’s oceans and rainforests, along with helping to advance other key campaigns.

Just within the past year, DiCaprio’s foundation has donated a whopping $6 million to conservation campaigns — $3 million of which went to the WWF tiger conservation program in Nepal with the other $3 million grant heading to Oceana to help save the oceans and marine animals from unsustainable fishing methods.

Now, DiCaprio is at it again (woohoo!) and has stepped up to donate $1 million to the Elephant Crisis Fund.

According to the Wildlife Conservation Network, the grant “will be sued to save elephants from the current ivory poaching crisis by funding on-the-ground projects that stop poaching, trafficking and the demand for ivory.”

This funding is critical as the poaching continues unabated in African countries, killing nearly 100 elephants per day. The demand for ivory in Asian nations and communities around the world (even in the U.S.) directly contributes to this cruel slaughter.

“Elephant poaching is a brutal crisis, with more than 30,000 elephants killed last year alone,” said DiCaprio. “The decimation of these animals is something we have the power to stop, and the Elephant Crisis Fund is a crucial part of the solution. I am honored to support them.”

Go, DiCaprio!

Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email [email protected] and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on [email protected] because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you.

please ohh please dont use religious context,, like dat polar bear \'\'MENT to be\'\',, its not helping me see vegan as a good rational thing possible for none crazy people,, ofc dats my point of view,, actually de majority of quebec thinks dat way (bit why people here disgusts me so much,, (luv dat we got rid of none sence to make space for science,, but we also lost all sence of values and respect for our planet etc),, and if you guys use too much religious context,, well i feel like vegan means cult de more im hearing it,, wont really catch much french people if you talk dat way,, got annoyed enough with one of my models James Aspey for helping inspire to convert but hearing him going more and more the other side,, also i dont want to stop you from your beliefs,, but please if it represent your website please keep it neutral please?,, or dis web site dat i used to think was my very favorite for veganism,, well ill have to avoid as well.. i have obsetion and i want no part with ignorance encouragement,, too many problems the majority used to ignore just to mostly think of uncertainty instead of searching for facts/answers,, and yes we need those religions but we dont need the majority of people being in everyone of those cults,, on de opposite,, we need diversity to create de future,, glad peta held their beliefs,, but they sound like religious nut jobs so i never could believe in dem or want to do anything with cults,, and its extremely common belief here so,,, .. hope i helped a bit understand,, but please dont lose your beliefs,, if your sure they worth keeping you prob have good reasons to think so,, i believe we all have good reasons to do wtv we do,, sometimes i feel like those reasons are less good then others but,, they also could be more important since we dont actually know whats true and not (but also anyone could create stuff up,, and could always take years and years to disprove everything,, while we could do something else instead,, and requires so much money just for dat,, why not putting dis money into vegan food instead xD),, like meteor,, atomic bomb shelter people,, people searching for answers in de past,, and soooo many others
