According to DiCaprio’s official website, his 1998-launched foundation is partnering with Acehnese conservationist Rudi Putra to create a wildlife sanctuary in the Leuser ecosystem of Aceh. The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is set to support Rudi’s project to maintain the forest by constructing barriers, training wildlife patrols and rangers, and recording and reporting ongoing habitat destruction.
