The 2nd Annual LDF Gala raised over US$40 million for protecting Earth’s last wild places and implementing solutions to preserve and save the environment.
Leonardo DiCaprio opened the evening with an impassioned speech about the Foundation’s work and stated, “Tonight’s event is about supporting LDFs efforts to protect key species like the tiger, rhino, shark, and mountain gorilla by working with governments to conserve the jungles, coral reefs and forests they call home. By focusing on protecting these critically-endangered iconic species is almost like setting up a worldwide network of Noahs arks.”
