Leonardo DiCaprio’s brave dog rescue in frozen lake and his impactful environmental activism. Learn about his heroic actions and eco-battles.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s heroic rescue. Leonardo DiCaprio dives into the frozen lake to save two dogs, his two Huskies in distress. According to media reports, the American actor was in Boston on the set of Don’t Look Up, accompanied by his two dogs when, during filming, one of them fell into the icy waters, and the other reached out to help him, risking both of them drowning.

And so, Titanic’s Jack Dowson – who knows if experience hasn’t helped him; didn’t hesitate before diving in to help them.

Rescue dogs. They would have done it for him, and he had no hesitation in doing it for them.

So when he saw them in trouble, Leonardo DiCaprio, a fiery activist and always on the front line to defend environmental and animal rights causes, jumped into the icy water to save Jack and Jill, his two Siberian Huskies (there is also a third, but he was not present).

According to media reports, the American actor was in Boston while filming Don’t Look Up, the movie he was involved in, accompanied by his two dogs.

However, when he saw one of them falling into the icy waters and the other reaching out to help him, risking drowning, Titanic’s Jack Dowson, who knows if experience hadn’t helped him, didn’t hesitate before diving into their aid.

Revealing the episode of the frozen lake and the “heroic” rescue was the actor himself during the show “Around The Table” to Entertainment Weekly when he was asked to share the most exciting moments on set.

We would have expected nothing less from Hollywood’s greenest star, who adopted two Huskies, Jack and Jill, in 2020 and became siblings with Sally, the third dog in the family, also of the same breed.

The Hollywood star’s environmental and animal rights battles

Leonardo DiCaprio is now an icon of environmentalism, and his fight to preserve the oceans and protect endangered species and global warming has echoes worldwide.

His Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, founded in 1998, constantly engages in awareness-raising and fundraising activities. He participates in world conferences and meets US presidents with whom he discusses environmental issues.

He has produced several documentaries to spotlight the biggest eco-challenges of our time.

He became a UN ambassador against climate change in 2014, and in 2016, he ranked as one of the most influential people in the world.

More recently, he set up the environmental foundation Earth Alliance, through which he donated five million dollars to save the Amazon forest devastated by fires. Then, just as in January 2020, he contributed three million dollars to the fires in Australia.

We need to cut down on meat consumption.

One of the actor’s latest battles to save the planet from climate change is cutting meat consumption and switching to a plant-based diet.

To move from words to deeds, it has decided to invest in two pioneering companies in the emerging synthetic meat sector, which have succeeded in creating the first hamburger and the first steaks in vitro from animal cells, i.e. without slaughtering.

The meat industry is now one of the main emitters of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, producing 14% of global emissions, more than the entire transport sector.

According to one of the most impressive studies ever done on the subject, The Green, Blue and Grey water footprint of farm animals and animal products, the water footprint of beef is hefty: 15,415 litres of water are needed to produce 1 kilo of meat.

In contrast, the study shows that it takes only 322 litres of water to produce one kilo of vegetables or 1,644 litres to produce one kilo of cereals.

An abysmal difference confirms that our food choices and adopting a less meat-rich (if not meat-free) diet would significantly impact global CO2 and methane emissions.
