Leonardo DiCaprio launches a new fund to save the lions

Lions are in trouble – there are around 20,000 today, down from 200,000 around 100 years ago. But everyone’s favorite eco-warrior, Leonardo DiCaprio, isn’t going to sit by while lion populations plummet. His foundation, together with the Wildlife Conservation Network, is starting the Lion Recovery Fund, a nonprofit with a lofty goal: double the amount of lions by 2050.
