Leonardo DiCaprio coming to India, to help save tigers
Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo Dicaprio will be visiting India soon to see tigers in the wild and raise global awareness about their dwindling numbers.

The Inception star is the ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and met Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh to discuss potential ways for him to get involved in the cause of the Indian tiger.

“He (DiCaprio) is very keen to work on tiger conservation. He wants to take on a more visible role. Somebody like him could play an important role in sensitizing the global community to the cause of the Indian tiger,” Ramesh said in an interview.

Earlier this year, DiCaprio had visited Nepal to assess the preservation programmes in place to save the species which is on the brink of extinction.

There are only an estimated 3,200 tigers left in the wild and India's tiger reserves are home to a sizeable chunk of the global tiger population.

“Leonardo has now started traveling around the world looking at tigers, trying to assess the role of climate change on tiger habitats. We are inviting him to India. We want to get him to India and working with India on the issue of climate, forests and habitats,” said Kevin Conrad, the executive director of the Coalition for Rainforest Nations.

No date has been set yet for DiCaprio's visit but it is expected to be in the next couple of months.
