Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio applauds Greece’s environmental policy


Hollywood actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio took to his Instagram account recently to express his admiration for Greece’s progressive approach to environmental conservation. 

DiCaprio commended Greece for its pioneering efforts in incorporating Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) into their legislative framework and policy-making process.

In the Instagram post, DiCaprio said Greece was “leading the way” in drafting laws in the environment sector.

“Greece recently became the 1st European country to recognise Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) in its laws and policies. KBAs are the most important places in the world for the persistence of biodiversity and play a critical role in the planet’s overall health,” the actor wrote.

“Congratulations are in order for the Greek government in leading the way by highlighting Key Biodiversity Areas as a key tool for expanding a network of protected areas and preserving biodiversity on Earth.”
