Leonardo DiCaprio is always on Team Wildlife and his stance against poaching is stronger than ever!
The actor took time to write on Facebook about the dangers of poaching.
Poaching is rampant throughout Africa – all for elephant ivory products that nobody needs.
If we can’t stop the illegal ivory trade in China and other countries, elephants will continue to be killed at alarming rates.
Learn how the International Fund for Animal Welfare – IFAW is addressing this crisis and how you can help.
While illegal hunting of elephants and rhinos largely takes place in Africa, most of it ends up in China. Poachers are becoming more militarized and traffickers are becoming more organized.
To take his anti-poaching stance even further, Leo is teaming up with Tobey Maguire and Tom Hardy to work on an anti-poaching flick!
Way to go, Leo!
