Leonardo DiCaprio is back at it again with saving the planet. Earlier this week he melted our hearts with sweet photos from his trip to Indonesia, where he visited with elephants and worked with activists to protect the Leuser Ecosystem (a cause close to his heart).
In case his first photos weren’t enough, the Oscar winner returned to Instagram to post his best snap yet. In the adorable post, DiCaprio holds hands with a Sumatran orangutan and pleads in the caption (and with his eyes) to help him save the creatures. “If we don’t stop this rampant destruction, the Leuser Ecosystem and the Sumatran orangutans that call it home could be lost forever,” he wrote.
As the forest of the #Indonesian #LeuserEcosystem continues to be cleared to meet demand for Palm Oil, the critically endangered Sumatran #orangutan is being pushed to the brink of extinction. Here, at the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme’s Orangutan Quarantine Center, rescued orangutans are rehabilitated so they can be released back into the wild. If we don't stop this rampant destruction, the Leuser Ecosystem and the Sumatran orangutans that call it home could be lost forever.

Keep the Instagrams coming, Leo, and we’ll do whatever you ask. Help save the animals (and even adopt a baby orangutan) here, through the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme.
