"Next year will see a whole array of relevant events for DiCaprio to take part in and make a greater effort to protect certain species of animals," Donskoy told reporters.
In March 2016, Donskoy invited DiCaprio to Moscow to discuss preserving the saiga antelope population.
#Regram #RG @Wildnetorg: This has been an incredibly tough year for the saiga antelope, whose population plummeted following a devastating and mysterious illness that wiped out half the population. Now, a plan has been drawn at a UN-backed meeting of conservationists to help restore the population of this beautiful and critically-endangered species.
He also posted a screenshot of a saiga antelope DiCaprio published on his Instagram in mid-December 2015. The actor wanted to draw attention to the plummeting population of the animal, following a "devastating and mysterious illness."
At the 2016 Academy Awards ceremony, DiCaprio won the prize for the first time in his career; he was named Best Actor for his role in The Revenant.
In 1998, DiCaprio founded his own organization, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF), aimed at protecting the world's last wild places.
