Leonardo was one of the first to report on it

On the social media accounts of Leonardo DiCaprio you don't get to see much private stuff about the actor. Instead, the actor mostly devotes himself to environmental protection and enlightens his followers.

The fires in the Amazon are also close to the 44-year-old. When it turned out that the rainforest had been burning for several weeks, DiCaprio was one of the first to report. Now he would like to donate about five million dollars so that the flames can be fought further.

DiCaprio has founded another charitable organization

Just recently, the actor and the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs founded the company "Earth Alliance". This organization is committed to clean drinking water, renewable energies and the protection of the ecosystem, among other things.

The website of "Earth Alliance" now draws special attention to the fires in the Amazon and calls for donations.

As "Variety" reports, the funds are donated to local organisations and the indigenous population.
