Leonardo DiCaprio is an award-winning actor, a four-time Academy Award nominee, and an outspoken advocate for environmental issues. He uses every tool at his disposal, from grantmaking to media projects, to protect biodiversity, conserve ocean and forest ecosystems, and fight climate change.
When Leo was 24, he established the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which is dedicated to the protection and wellbeing of all of Earth’s inhabitants. His foundation has allocated over $10 million to protect fragile ecosystems and key species around the globe.
Leo also works to get the public invested in the same issues that guide him, so he uses digital media to inform and inspire, offering ways to take action on an array of issues—from protecting sharks in California to supporting the transition of our society to clean, renewable energy.
