DiCaprio wants to save tigers

IANS, May 28, 2010, 04.06pm IST

Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has launched a campaign to protect the tigers.

“Tigers are endangered and critical to some of the world’s most important eco-systems. Key conservation efforts can save the tiger from extinction, protect some of the planet’s last wild habitats and help sustain the local communities surrounding them,” Contact music quoted him as saying.

The “Titanic” star has joined hands with the World Wildlife Fund to create “Save Tigers Now” with a view to raise $20 million for the cause.

DiCaprio, who is currently in Asia learning about the declining number of the species, hopes to double the population of the big cats by 2022.
