Actor, philanthropist, and true ele-friend, Leonardo DiCaprio donated $1 million to elephant protection organizations over the weekend.

At an event honoring the founder and CEO of Save the ElephantsIain Douglas-Hamilton, representatives of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation helped the Elephant Crisis Foundation (a campaign from Save the Elephants and the Wildlife Conservation Network) get much closer to their $5 million fundraising goal.  

“More than 30,000 African elephants were killed last year for their ivory tusks,” DiCaprio said. “This magnificent species faces a very uncertain future unless we take action now. The Elephant Crisis Fund will play a crucial role in solving this complex global problem by supporting projects that protect elephants from poachers, stop the trafficking of ivory, and end the demand for ivory.”

Sunday’s event raised over $2 million, all of which will go directly into elephant conservation programs.

“The only future for elephants is for governments, organizations, and individuals to join together in their support. What we have seen in Los Angeles has given us greater hope than ever, as a generous donation by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation was matched by this astonishing community,” said Iain Douglas-Hamilton, founder of Save The Elephants.
