While accepting the award DiCaprio dedicated his achievement to all of the indigenous tribes around the world.
He said “It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests and people that are out there to exploit them. It is time that we heard your voice and protected this planet for future generations.” Leonardo founded the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

He had made several films to educate the public about environmental issues, including 11th Hour.
