Look who’s looking at an India jaunt? Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, who is on a noble mission might arrive in India to help spread the need for saving tigers from extinction. With tiger conservation high on his mind, Leo is continuing his campaign to save tigers from extinction by partnering with the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s 2010 Animal Action Week.
The actor has announced that he will be travelling to India sometime in the next few months to bring attention to tiger conservation programs here. It has been reported that he hopes to mop up more than $20 million to double the worldwide tiger population by 2022.
Meanwhile, guys at Ecorazzi tells us that the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s 2010 Animal Action Week, which is now in it’s 18th year, will be held through Sunday. The event, this year, aims at encouraging children around the world to work for saving the tigers. Leonardo DiCaprio will be at the forefront of this initiative.
The event this year has a ‘Born to be Wild’ theme and would vociferously call for saving the tigers from the present plight. The tigers across the world are now diminishing in number and are on the brink of extinction in the wild due to habitat loss and poaching. Worldwide, wild tiger population has now been recorded at 3,000 today compared with 100,000 in 1900.
