Visit Leonardo DiCaprio in Indonesia could be the last in the life of an actor, and all because of a post on the social network, which he did.
Posting some photos from Indonesia, particularly from the national Park in the North of the island of Sumatra – Gunung laser, DiCaprio admired by the inhabitants and nature of the place, but at the same time noted that soon the Park could disappear from the face of the Earth due to the spread of palm oil.
“Ecosystem “Gunung laser” is considered the best habitat for endangered Sumatran elephants. They are still found in these places, but the expansion of plantations leads to a change in migration routes used by elephants, so it is getting harder to find food and water, wrote DiCaprio.
Despite the good intentions of the actor to protect the forest from being cut down, the authorities considered that the words of the actor can be qualified as incitement or provocation. Such assumption was expressed by the Minister of environment and forestry of Indonesia nurbaya city of Bakar.
Today the Minister noted that his words were misinterpreted.
“My point in this matter is identical with the point of view of DiCaprio. He certainly spoke from the heart. In fact, we very much share his concern over this issue and are open to collaboration, which can improve the ecosystem of the Gunung-Leser”, — said the Minister.
