Will Leonardo DiCaprio be banned from entering Indonesia?

Sharing is Caring

New Delhi, April 4 (ANI): Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who is equally involved in saving the planet, might face ban from returning to Indonesia after he criticized the nation’s palm oil plantations for destroying rain forests. The 41-year-old actor had recently visited the Indonesian island of Sumatra last month and posted on Instagram that the palm oil industry was threatening such wildlife in the Leuser Ecosystem as Sumatran elephants, tigers and orangutans. DiCaprio had written, “The expansion of palm oil plantations is fragmenting the forest and cutting off key elephant migration corridors, making it more difficult for elephant families to find adequate sources of food and water.” Plantations often use slash-and-burn techniques to clear forest in the area. A spokesperson for the Indonesian government, responded to the posts by threatening to prevent the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ actor from visiting the Southeast Asian country again.
