Leonardo DiCaprio Fights to Help Wildlife in Indonesia

Leonardo DiCaprio Fights to Help Wildlife in Indonesia

Leonardo DiCaprio poses with some elephants and activists while visiting the Mount Leuser National Park on Sunday (March 27) in Indonesia.

“The lowland #rainforest of the Leuser Ecosystem are considered the world’s best remaining habitat for the critically endangered Sumatran #elephant. In these forests, ancient elephant migratory paths are still used by some of the last #wild herds of Sumatran elephants. But the expansion of Palm Oil plantations is fragmenting the #forest and cutting off key elephant migratory corridors, making it more difficult for elephant families to find adequate sources of food and water. The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is supporting local partners to establish a mega-fauna sanctuary in the Leuser Ecosystem, last place on Earth where Sumatran orangutans, tigers, rhinos and elephants coexist in the wild,” the 41-year-old actor wrote on Instagram.

Local leaders are fighting to save the land in the courts, but additional help is needed. Please sign the Change.org petition to show your support.

  • ####

    She’s female and she knows she’s standing next to Leo! LOL

  • Shelly

    I’m curious why are you talking to me? I mean when king was putting me down you upvote him??? Sorry I’m a little surprised!

  • Guess

    Hi, I was thinking the same thing, LOL.

  • Anna David

    Love the pic. The elephant is adorable grabbing him.

  • Shali

    She can’t keep her trunk off him And I don’t blame her! lol
    No seriously this must be the cutest pic that I’ve seen in a while. Plus his smile is to die for! Btw he looks really really hot!

  • Joanna

    You’re kidding,right?I don’t even know that you two fought!!!

  • Joanna

    You’re kidding,right?I don’t even know that you two fought!!!

  • Anna

    Wow! This is a great photo and perfectly timed. That elephant who’s holding onto Leo’s pantleg is so cute. It even looks like she’s smiling a devilish smile because she knows exactly what she’s doing. :D

    He called me hideous ect. And you upvoted him, so I thought you didn’t like me. By the way real also is not destroy trust me when I say that ok.

  • Joanna

    You’re kidding,right?Maybe I was upvoting a few comments in arow,and I upvoted him accidentally,but I would never upvote him for talking crap to female posters on this thread.Cause he can be really rude and offensive,I know.I really don’t remeber what you two were arguing about.Speaking of Destroy,I wish Zzzzz would tell who it is,if she knows.Or if you know,so people would stop thinking it’s her.I draw my conclusion from the fact that she hates King the most on this thread,and that everytime she disappears,Destroy appears.However,if I find out that I’m wrong,I will admit.I don’t have a problem with that.I just wish this whole mess would clear up,once and for all.
    Btw,I like you a lot!! :D

  • Shelly

    Well I thought it was real also too at one time. However it’s not her. It’s easy to put the blame on real also cause she disliked him. Shoot Joanna I don’t like him either maybe I’m destroy! Lol Kidding but I think you know real also isn’t the only one who dislikes that poster.

  • Joanna

    I know.But I think one of the reasons he behaves that way is because the person who posted his personal pics aka.Destroy(whoever it is) won’t delete them,and is still blackmailing him with those pics to this very day.Now,I’m not defending him,but I understand how that would make him frustrated.Cause I remember him begging for that poster to delete his pcs,and still that didn’t happen.Now,in my book that ain’t right.What do you say?

  • Shelly

    No , it’s not right. At first I thought the new destroy was a fake one.That is why I said to them well post a pic. I just wanted to see if they were real and so they posted the pic again. However until someone spills the beans lets stop putting the blame on people. That’s all I’m going to say. Have a great night girl.

  • Joanna

    You too,Shell Bell!! :D

  • Charade

    Maybe it’s a male that’s heard the rumours and wants to check out the competition ;) LOL

  • ####

    LOL…..she doesn’t have any tusks so I’m going with female and she obviously knows where the crown jewels are! :-)

  • (S)

    I’ve riden an elephant before at the zoo when I was a little girl. Of course being a child I had no real concept of how the animal probably didn’t enjoy giving me or others rides and was much better off free to live in it’s natural habitat, instead of a zoo. Love seeing Leo support such a good and necessary cause! :)

  • Charade

    I hadn’t noticed there were no tusks! Wonder where i was staring Lol

  • ####

    As we all were! LOL

  • Shelly
  • Fangirl
