This piece originally appeared on NY Daily News.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio plans to turn his private island in Belize into an eco-resort, according to reports.
DiCaprio, who purchased the unpopulated 104-acre Blackadore Caye for $1.75 million in 2005, will build a luxury resort with villas on a platform over the water, artificial reefs with “fish shelters,” and a nursery growing marine grass to feed manatees, the New York Times reported.
“The main focus is to do something that will change the world,” DiCaprio told the paper.“I couldn’t have gone to Belize and built on an island and done something like this, if it weren’t for the idea that it could be groundbreaking in the environmental movement.”
