Actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance organization on Thursday announced that they plan to donate $3 million to assist wildfire relief efforts in Australia.
The money donated by DiCaprio will go to local Australian partner organizations including Aussie Ark, Bush Heritage, and Wires Wildlife Rescue. A number of experts have pointed to the fast-growing wildfires as a result of climate change.
They launched the organization last year to combat climate change and biodiversity loss. In 2016, DiCaprio produced a documentary film, titled “Before the Flood,” that explores the damages climate change can cause and potential remedies.
