In May 2013, the 39-year-old actor hosted a record-breaking charity art auction at Christie’s that brought in an astounding $38.8 million.

In November, the first gift from that evening’s festivities was bestowed upon the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) — $3 million donation to fund tiger conservation programs.

DiCaprio’s foundation doled out another $3 million in February — this time to the ocean conservation group Oceana. Spread over three years, the donation will allow Oceana to fund habitat protection for marine life.
