Leonardo DiCaprio Wants To Save Tigers

By Suparna Chakaraborthy

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio, has started a new organization for the protection of endangered tigers. The star has joined hands with World Wildlife Fund to launch Save Tigers Now.

His organization aims at raising 13 million pounds for the cause. Tigers, the king of forest is fast depleting and thus, proper care, security and steps need to be taken, which costs a certain amount. This is a much talked about issue but not much has been done.

To do true justice to the cause, Leonardo is visiting Asia to learn more about the decreasing Tiger population. “Tigers are endangered and critical to some of the world's most important ecosystems. Key conservation efforts can save the tiger species from extinction, protect some of the planet's last wild habitats and help sustain the local communities surrounding them," says Leonardo.

The organization hopes to double the population of tigers by 2022. They are taking every step to make this happen. If this comes true then it would be the biggest achievements.
