Los Angeles: American actor and film producer Leonardo DiCaprio has pledged to donate USD 7 million to ocean conservation projects over the next two years.

The 39-year-old `Wolf of Wall Street` star had already made a USD 3 million grant to a sea wildlife charity February 2014 through his charity foundation `The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.`

In addition to that, he is making another donation of USD 7 million to help conserve the oceans.

"Thru my foundation today I`m pledging USD 7 million to ocean conservation projects over the next 2 years. #OurOcean2014," DiCaprio tweeted.

DiCaprio says he has seen the environmental devastation of the ocean firsthand and has pledged the money "as a concerned citizen of this planet" to raise awareness as much as possible.
