Leonardo DiCaprio supports activists’ efforts to save Romania’s virgin forests

Famous American actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio posted a photo on a message on his Instagram account to support the Greenpeace activists’ efforts to preserve Romania’s last remaining virgin forests.

“Greenpeace volunteers collect trash found in Romanian forests at the forest rescue station near Vidraru Lake, in the Argeș river basin—an area threatened by illegal logging and forest destruction. Last month, Greenpeace volunteers from 11 European countries (Romania, Austria, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Hungary, Croatia, Finland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Switzerland) started to map one of the last remaining ancient and old growth forests in Europe in order to highlight the need for the Romanian Government to legally protect it,” Leonardo DiCaprio wrote.

His message got 235,000 likes and over 800 comments in less than 24 hours.
