For those of you who don’t know yet, Mr Leonardo Dicaprio, yes, the actor (so handsome!), is also a passionate advocate for conservation and sustainability. His Leonardo Dicaprio Foundation (LDF) is one of the big players in the fight for a brighter future for our planet and ourselves! In light of the current situation in the Amazon forests, LDF has joined the joined forces with Amazon Watch. “Amazon Watch is a nonprofit organization founded in 1996 to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin. They partner with indigenous and environmental organizations in campaigns for human rights, corporate accountability and the preservation of the Amazon’s ecological systems. Nearly 400 distinct indigenous peoples depend on the Amazon rainforest for their physical and cultural survival. At current rates of deforestation, nearly 50 percent of the Amazon could be lost or severely degraded by the year 2020, and the vast majority will no longer be in a pristine state.”-LDF.
