The actor's donation will go straight to use in Nepal, where park rangers can use the money to protect and nurture local wild tigers. "Time is running out for the world's remaining 3,200 tigers, largely the result of habitat destruction and escalating illegal poaching," World Wildlife Fund board member DiCaprio said in a statement. "WWF, the government of Nepal and local communities are on the front lines of this battle, and I am hopeful this grant will help them exceed the goal of doubling the number of these noble creatures in the wild."
