Leonardo DiCaprio loves the environment and every wonderful creature in it!
So of course he'll do whatever he can to help out those in need.
As most of us know, elephants are in serious need of help. Under constant assault from poachers, people need to step up and make a difference.
Leo has heard that call to action and has stepped up and given a $1 MILLION gift to help the elephants!
That is incredible!! That's a whole lotta dough!
Though, if he can afford a $1,000,000 parking spot, we guess this isn't going to hurt him much.
DiCaprio released a statement that said:
"Elephant poaching is a brutal crisis, with more than 30,000 elephants killed last year alone. 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 and recognize Dr. Douglas-Hamilton for his lifelong commitment to protecting this species."
The million dollar gift was announced at a benefit honoring Save the Elephants Founder and CEO Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton.
Even though Leo wasn't at the event, his gift inspired the attendees so much that they matched his donation! They got another million together!
That's so incredible! Way to go, Leo!!
Save the elephants!
