Leonardo DiCaprio Meets an Orangutan, Fights for Animal Welfare in Leuser

Leonardo DiCaprio touches a Sumatran Orangutan while wearing a medical mask in this new photo posted to his Facebook from his trip to the Leuser Ecosystem in Indonesia.

“As the forests of Indonesia’s Leuser Ecosystem continue to be cleared to meet demand for Palm Oil, the critically endangered Sumatran orangutan is being pushed to the brink of extinction. At the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP)’s Orangutan Quarantine Center, rescued orangutans are rehabilitated so they can be released back into the wild,” the 41-year-old Oscar winner wrote on his Facebook, along with a link of how to help the species.

The Leuser ecosystem is last place on earth where orangutans, rhinos, tigers and elephants still live together in the wild, and it is currently being threatened by Palm Oil agricultural destruction.

    it’s denise, a long time “ex-teen” escort of old losers-”wolf-pack”. if she is virgin then I Am a Queen of GB! and yeah CANDY, you claimed here that leo doesn’t sleep with her but he watches how others F*ck her….
    but I agree she could be a real sm…they have so many common interests!

  • fox

    denise

  • fox

    it’s denise!

  • fox

    her face, hair, nose, lips! it’s your old whore denise

  • fox

    she is denise and i agree she’s sm. he should marry escort

  • fox

    sure! everyone here knows it’s denise

  • fox

    oh God…what will I see. nothing new. escort denise

  • Shelly

    That’s right too he’s going to be a daddy this year. I gotta mark this down so I don’t forget! Lol

  • fox

    good! i always thought denise or other teen escort is perfect for leo. plus if she sleeps with all wolf-pack anyone could be a daddy of his future child. but since he loves his friends so much he’s fine with it!
    denise+leo=love :)

  • fox

    he has a dinner with his escort…what’s your problem? anyway she lives in his houses! she almoust his wife!
