We are inspired, humbled, and deeply grateful to Leonardo DiCaprio and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation for their extraordinary support. Worldwide, our most iconic species are on the brink, but LDF and WCN envision a different future for all that is wild. LDF’s generosity has been catalytic in launching wildlife crisis funds to support the best ideas and most urgent actions—from a coalition of the biggest to the smallest organizations—to turn the tables in wildlife’s favor.
To date, LDF’s investment in the Elephant Crisis Fund has enabled Save the Elephants and WCN to support more than 100 projects by 40 organizations across Africa and Asia, to end the ivory crisis and ensure these giants will forever roam free. While there is much more to do, their newly announced, additional commitment of $1M will help us advance many more efforts by innovative partners to secure a future for elephants.
Building on this experience and LDF’s ongoing generous support, we are now poised to ensure more species, beginning with African Lions, will be stepping back from the brink.
We extend our deepest thanks for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation’s partnership, which has been nothing short of game-changing.
