Please sign the petition urging DiCaprio never to work with great apes again!
We've written to Leonardo DiCaprio about his film The Wolf of Wall Street, which features Chance, a young chimpanzee. Great apes used in films and television endure terrible abuse, beginning when they are taken away from their highly protective mothers shortly after birth, causing irreversible psychological harm. Undercover investigations have documented that physical abuse of ape "actors" during preproduction training is standard practice. You can read more about animals used for film and television here.
We know that DiCaprio is conscientious about the environment and cares about protecting wild animals. Please ask him to pledge never to work with great apes again and, by doing so, set an example for the entertainment industry.
