Dicaprio And Norton Join Sea Eco-conference

Eco-friendly actors LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and EDWARD NORTON were among the stars who gathered in Ecuador last week (beg05Apr10) to take part in an innovative conference and a trip to the Galapagos Islands.
An elite group of environmentally-conscious celebrities, including Glenn Close, Daryl Hannah and Chevy Chase, joined over 100 business leaders, scientists and activists to participate in The Mission Blue Voyage, a four-day conference at sea to address conservation issues in the country.
Guest speakers during the trip included veteran rocker Jackson Browne, singer/songwriter Damien Rice, film producer Jake Eberts and French explorer/environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau.
DiCaprio and Norton are said to have met with Ecuador’s Vice President Lenin Moreno during the trip on Friday (09Apr10) and given him their backing for the Yasuni-ITT initiative, a scheme which aims to protect the Ecuadorian Amazon from oil extraction measures.
