The money donated by one of the most respected actors in Hollywood will also help improve the already existing fisheries around the US, Europe and Central America.

The $2 million donated by Leonardo DiCaprio went to Oceans 5 which is a platform for marine conservation. DiCaprio made his latest donation through his personal foundation, the “Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation”, which he founded in 1998. His foundation has been helping all kinds of causes that help protect the planet.
Leonardo DiCaprio is famous for his huge donations, which gained him the honor of being a “Messenger of Peace”, given to him by Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of United Nation. DiCaprio has been a voice for environmental causes all around the world, especially climate change related.
Ocean 5 is an environmental foundation that works with foundations like DiCaprio’s to protect the marine environment and its endangered species from all kinds of dangers.
Kristian Parker chairman of the Oak Foundation said that Leonardo DiCaprio is very committed and very enthusiastic about helping both small and bigger natural foundations.
Leonardo DiCaprio said about Ocean 5 foundation that:
“Oceans 5 is an exciting new platform for marine conservation. 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.”
