Leonardo DiCaprio Thanks Russian City for Oscar Made For Him

Russian villagers sent Leonardo DiCaprio a handmade “Oscar” to show their appreciation for what he said about climate change while accepting his actual Oscar. He explains it in his Instagram post:

Thank you to the people of Yakutia for this wonderful gift, especially all of the women who gathered and donated the materials that went into creating the statue. As they wrote in their letter, Yakutia is home to the coldest inhabited place not only in Russia, but also on Earth – and the region is extremely vulnerable to climate change. Rising temperatures pose a major threat to its people, their way of life and their natural habitat. #Russia #ClimateChange #Earth#Yakutia #ActOnClimate

This local news report is in Russian, but you can watch them sculpt the initial design before making it.
