TreePeople honored DiCaprio, mother of actor Leonardo DiCaprio, with the Evergreen Award for her work bettering the environment. The organization’s founder, Andy Lipkis, expressed his disappointment at the Senate decision as well, while presenting DiCaprio with her award.

“It’s hard right now,” Lipkis said. “We had a chance to save people, and we didn’t.”

While accepting the honor, DiCaprio detailed the origins of her family’s passion for the environment and the beginnings of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which she and her son established in 1998.

“I moved to Los Angeles and made it a point to live right at the edge of Griffith Park because the image of the forest in Germany was always in me,” DiCaprio said.

“This is where Leonardo was born — right there, within walking distance of the greatest city park in the world, and luckily, a short distance to the Hollywood movie studios. Even as a young child, Leonardo was always fascinated with nature and animals.”
