Just in case you required another reason to ovulate when Henry Cavill is in the vicinity, it turns out he actually is Superman. An animal-loving, completely adorable Superman.
Cavill has announced a partnership with Durrell Wildlife Park on the island of Jersey, with whom he's launching Cavill Conservation.
Via the official website, you can adopt a family of gorillas from the park. Depending on how much you choose to spend, you will receive a reward from Mr Cavill himself. Unfortunately, it's not his groin.
Cavill said in a statement:
I’m enormously proud to be part of a team that makes such a huge positive impact on the world...Durrell is an organisation with a mission I can really get behind. I feel that saving the diversity of life on our planet will be seen as increasingly important in the not-too-distant future. I genuinely believe that Durrell provide hope for those endangered animals that others may have given up on already. They ‘do the seemingly impossible’; I would be truly humbled if I help to make that possible
If you aren't already convinced he's the perfect human being, here's a video of Cavill discussing the project:

Here's three more superheroes who proved their credentials in real life:
1) Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk)
Ruffalo works with water charity Water Defense, and auctioned off the chance to hang out on the set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron in return for donations.
2) Andrew Garfield (Spiderman)
Garfield visited a school in Brixton as part of an event for children's charity Kid's City. He came dressed in costume, and played basketball with the children.
3) Patrick Stewart (Star Trek, X-Men)
Stewart made a now-famous speech for Amnesty International against domestic abuse towards women in 2006. He also works with Refuge, a safe house charity for women and children. Stewart grew up watching his mother being abused.
