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.
