Tom Hardy, Dog

Tom Hardy is slated to host a documentary about wildlife poaching in Africa for the U.K. network ITV.

The actor will also executive produce the special, which will be separated into two hour-long episodes.

The project, which is being tentatively titled Poaching Wars With Tom Hardy, was reportedly Hardy's own idea.

The 35-year-old will travel to multiple countries in Africa and meet those affected and taking part in the illegal industry. He'll also speak with key governmental figures to find out more about fighting the matter at hand and what viewers can do to help.

Dean Baker, another executive producer on the specials, said, "Tom's goal is to bring the senseless slaughter of endangered wildlife in Africa to the attention of the masses. This documentary is the first step of that process."

It looks like Hardy is taking matters into his own hands and speaking out for a good cause.
