After pledging US$ 7 Million to Ocean Conservation in June 2014, just 3 days ago Leonardo Di Caprio donated another US$ 2 Million to Oceans5, another Ocean Foundation.

“Oceans 5 is an exciting new platform for marine conservation,” Leo said in an official press release. “Working together with other philanthropists, we are making smarter, more impactful investments for the future of our planet. The sad truth is that less than two percent of our oceans are fully protected. We need to change that now. My Foundation supports Oceans 5 projects that are directly improving ocean health by stopping overfishing and creating marine reserves.”

The money will be used in preventing illegal fishing in the European Union; making the globe’s fourth biggest marine reserve; fixing fisheries enforcements in certain areas; and making a marine park three times bigger than California, among other things.

“Oceans 5 is about making a difference for future generations,” said Ted Waitt, the Founder and Chairman of the California-based Waitt Foundation. “Leo and his Foundation bring a strategic focus to helping coastal communities protect biodiversity. It is a strong addition to our group.”

I’d say Leonardo DiCaprio is a real hero and perfect face for Ocean lofe.

Thank you!
