The ‘Titanic’ actor, who launched the Save Tigers Now organisation to protect the big cats, has praised officials for setting up the Wildlife Crime Control unit.

“A bit of good news in an otherwise dire situation. Save Tigers now,” a website quoted DiCaprio as tweeting as he posts a link to an article about the latest development.
