They began tweeting on behalf of the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), hoping to make them "fan favorite" for the Google Global Impact Award.
When you combine lots of celebs, with their millions of followers, you get the ZSL an over $700,000 grant from Google!!
That's right! They won!
The ZSL is going to install cameras with automated sensors near poaching hotspots at Tsavo National Park in Kenya.
This will literally save hundreds of animals because the high-tech cameras can even detect vehicles vibrations and triangulate the sound of gunshots!!
The director of fundraising for ZSL said:
"It’s fantastic to have won this important Google grant, and we couldn’t have done it without the overwhelming support from our VIP friends and the public. These life-saving cameras will help stop the slaughter of rhinos, elephants, and more, before it’s too late."
It's predicted that poaching will go down 50% at the park within the next two years because of the cameras!!
That's so incredible!! Way to go, Leo and friends!!
