Leonardo DiCaprio has recently stepped up his climate activism game by partnering with billionaire investors and philanthropists to create a new non-profit with the main target of battling climate change.
Called the Earth Alliance, the organization is essentially joining the resources of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, the Emerson Collective, and the Global Wildlife Conservation in an effort to save our planet from numerous threats to the environment. Part of the non-profit’s objectives will be to provide grants, educational opportunities, and fund campaigns and films, as well as work with grassroots organizations and individuals in places most affected by biodiversity loss and climate change.
DiCaprio has long championed environmentalism, with his eco-focused Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation giving out $100 million in grants for everything from lion recovery and mangrove restoration to the defense of indigenous rights and better access to affordable solar energy. If anything, this should be an indication that DiCaprio’s organization is serious about protecting the planet.
