It's a big day for Leonardo DiCaprio, and an even bigger day for his foundation.
Earlier today it was revealed that the actor's eponymous group provided a whopping $15 million in grants to more than 30 organizations that are aimed at conservation projects around the globe.
According to the press release, the latest grants will "support trusted nonprofits, results-driven conservation projects, and collaborative initiatives across the world." Some of the organizations involved include Amazon Watch, Save the Elephants, Tree People and the World Wildlife Fund.
DiCaprio commented on the major milestone, saying, "The destruction of our planet continues at a pace we can no longer afford to ignore. We have a responsibility to innovate a future where the habitability of our planet does not come at the expense of those who inhabit it."
