Academy Award-winning actor, musician and director Jared Leto has agreed to become  a WWF Global Ambassador and use his status to focus attention on the most urgent environmental issues facing our planet.
He participated recently in a WWF-supported project to protect rhino in South Africa – where 1,215 rhino were illegally killed in 2014, the highest toll in decades.  Mr Leto said he is committed and passionate about ensuring the survival of these and other endangered species, noting the deep connection we have with nature.  “We must join together and protect these powerful but extremely vulnerable animals from senseless slaughter,” he said.  “I’m honoured to join with WWF and the global conservation community and do my part.  I hope you will too”.
