Henry Cavill plays Superman in the 2016 movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so you may be interested to see how he reacts when coming face to face with Madagascar’s Ploughshare Tortoise. The video, shared by the charity, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, of which the actor is an ambassador, shows the cute meeting.
When Cavill was on break from filming the Man of Steel sequel, he returned to his home in Jersey, in the U.K. and took the time to embark in a couple of worthy causes. One of them was the Durrell Wildlife Conservation trust, which he visited while he was in England.
On their website, the organization talks about how cool it was to have Henry as a guest in early August and how enthusiastic he was about the work they do on behalf of endangered species.
“Henry might be an actor by trade, but the infectious energy he brought with him – and the sheer happiness we saw when he met our animals – was 100 percent real.”
“That’s the thing; to a person, everyone at Durrell – from Volunteer to Director – is here because they love animals, and care about the fate of those species that need human help, if they aren’t to become extinct. It turns out that we have a soul mate in Hollywood, and his name is Henry!”
