'Titanic' star Leonardo DiCaprio is putting his money where his mouth is — DiCaprio who is also an environmental activist has plans to improve the ecosystem of an entire island.
The 40-year-old actor is launching a project that will transform a small island off the coast of Belize into an eco-resort and conservation area, according to the New York Times, reports dailymail.co.uk.
The 'Wolf Of Wall Street' star, along with a partner, purchased the 104-acre Blackadore Caye nearly a decade ago for $1.75 million. But he recently united with Paul Scialla, the chief executive of New York development firm Delos, to create the eco-conscious resort, with plans to open in 2018.
"It was like heaven on earth. And almost immediately, I found this opportunity to purchase an island there," DiCaprio said of his visit to the island.
The ambitious project will be called 'Blackadore Caye, a Restorative Island'. It is likely to be like many other luxury resorts and include sprawling villas, infinity pools and beautiful views.
