Time and time again, Leonardo DiCaprio has proven he’s invested in the future of our planet. For more than a couple of weeks, the Amazon has been burning. Rosana Villar of Greenpeace recently told CNN that because of the fires, the Amazon “is almost a cemetery. Because all you can see is death.” As people call out Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for his role in the fires, Leonardo DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance is committing $5 million toward helping the Indigenous communities affected by the fires.
The organization’s Amazon Forest Fund will go toward five organizations: Instituto Associacao Floresta Protegida, Coordination of the Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon, Instituto Socioambiental, Instituto Raoni and Instituto Kabu.
Earth Alliance, which DiCaprio founded in July alongside Laurene Powell Jobs and Brian Sheth, is working to protect the environment, with a focus on Indigenous rights, according to Variety.
