According to organizers, an estimated 400,000 took to the streets of Manhattan on Sunday, surpassing early reports of 150,000 supporters.
Carter Roberts presented the award to the movie star for his continued efforts in protecting the environment.
“Together we can find ways to scale up funding and create intelligent partnerships,” DiCaprio told the gala crowd, which included former President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Eva Longoria and Seth Meyers.
“By protecting our oceans and our wild lands we allow species to recover, local communities to thrive and ultimately maintain a stable climate for all life on earth.” [via The Hollywood Reporter]
