We told you about Leonardo DiCaprio‘s partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to launch a campaign called Save Tigers Now. And his most recent donation of a cool $1 million to the Save Tigers Now campaign.

The 36-year-old hopes to raise $20 million for the cause, which he intends to use toward doubling the tiger population by 2022as it stands, there are just an estimated 3,200 wild tigers left in existence.

“Tigers are endangered and critical to some of the world’s most important ecosystems,” said DiCaprio. “Key conservation efforts can save the tiger species from extinction, protect some of the planet’s last wild habitats and help sustain the local communities surrounding them. By protecting this iconic species, we can save so much more.”

And this morning on Twitter, DiCaprio seems to have found a fellow animal lover to promote the cause! The Inception actor tweeted, “@LeoDiCaprio I think we’ve just found our future spokesperson. #SaveTigersNow http://bit.ly/gRkD4j”

The video he tweeted is of Bella, an adorable little girl who is reporting on Save Tigers Now for a project at school. We’ve included the video below, so you can hear the lowdown from Bella and why saving tigers is so important to her. Also, enjoy the cat meow’s in the background (too cute!!).
