DiCaprio On Fire: Leonardo takes actions on the Amazon rainforest fire incident

By  Marcelo N. Morales Jr.

Academy Award-winning actor and longtime philanthropist Leonardo DiCaprio has initiated his environmental organization to donate 5 million dollars to help the Amazon rainforest, which recently suffered damages due to surges of fire. DiCaprio posted on Instagram that he is “deeply concerned about the ongoing crisis in the Amazon, which highlights the delicate balance of climate, biodiversity, and the well-being of indigenous peoples”.

The Earth Alliance website stated: “The destruction of the Amazon rainforest is rapidly releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, destroying an ecosystem that absorbs millions of tonnes of carbon emissions every year and is one of the planet’s best defenses against the climate crisis.”

DiCaprio’s Earth Alliance will donate money to the local indigenous communities as they continue to work on protecting the Amazon rainforest. Instituto Associacao Floresta Protegida (Kayapo), Coordination of the Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon (COIAB), Instituto Kabu (Kayapo), Instituto Raoni (Kayapo) and Instituto Socioambiental (ISA) are the organizations that will receive the donations. According to the National Institute for Space Research in Brazil, 72,000 incidents of fire occurred in the Amazon rainforest as of the beginning of 2019.

President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil is in the hot seat, being pressed on his lack of actions on such issues, thus being suspected to encourage the destruction of the Amazon rainforest. But Bolsonaro denies such accusations, instead, pointing the blame on non-governmental organizations (NGOs), but haven’t shown any evidence to support his claim.

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised 10 million euros (11,089,350,000.00 U.S. Dollars) to help protect the Amazon rain forest.

Furthermore, DiCaprio has encouraged the people for their support and involvement to help the crisis.
