Grateful for all who came out to the @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn Gala & contributed to our efforts to protect the planet. This past year LDF and its partners made a measurable difference. We helped protect more than 1.6 million square kilometers of ocean – an area more than twice the size of Texas – including the creation of the largest marine reserve in the world in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. We are also supporting efforts to bring back the jaguar and the Mexican Gray Wolf – now 32 wolf packs have returned to the Pacific Northwest! In Tanzania our partner has restored the wildlife of Mkomazi national park, and in the grasslands of Kenya, where we are helping jump start an important carbon sequestration project. These are just a few of the stories about the impact the generosity of our donors has helped make possible. Click the link in bio to get involved.

Now more than ever, the world is looking for bold leadership at every level to tackle climate change and environmental conservation issues. I am honored to work with President Peña Nieto (@EPN) to ensure the future viability of marine life in the Gulf. This action is a critical step towards ensuring that the Gulf of California continues to be both vibrant and productive, especially for species like the critically endangered #vaquita. My foundation, @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn, and I look forward to continuing to work with President Peña Nieto, our NGO partners and the local communities in the Gulf to reach greater progress on these important issues.
