Leonardo DiCaprio saves the tigers
Hollywoodnews.com: It takes a tiger to save a tiger.
Leonardo DiCaprio is becoming a champion to save an estimated 3,200 wild tigers from extinction. Currently, the “Inception” thespian is visiting with the World Wildlife Fund.
“Tigers are endangered and critical to some of the world’s most important ecosystems,” DiCaprio tells UsMagazine.com in a statement. “Key conservation efforts can save the tiger species from extinction, protect some of the planet’s last wild habitats and help sustain the local communities surrounding them.”
“By protecting this iconic species, we can save so much more,” DiCaprio says.
DiCaprio is one of the leading celebrity environmentalists. He is so passionate about saving the environment that he drives a Toyota Prius. In 2007, he produced, wrote and narrated the environmental documentary “The 11th Hour.”
In honor of the Year of the Dragon, WWF has a $20 million charity goal to double the tiger population by 2022.
