ANIMAL LOVER ALIA BHATT MARKED MOTHER’s DAY BY LAUNCHING A 90 KILO TURTLE BACK INTO THE OCEAN :

Animal lover Alia Bhatt, who has three cats -Pica, Sheeba and Edward- marked Mother’s Day on Sunday by visiting the Dahanu Forest Division Office, that releases animals back into nature after rescuing and treating them. The 24-year-old actress released a 90-kilo sea turtle named Queen back into the ocean with the help of Dhaval Kansara (Founder-Secretary of Wildlife Conservation and Animal Welfare Association) and veterinarian Dr Dinesh Vinherkar. The move marked the launch of her new initiative, CoExist, which is aimed at animal welfare and tackling environmental issues. “I had been thinking about this for a while. Issues like elephants or dogs being ill-treated, stories of endangered animals like tigers being poached, have always bothered me. I’ve been passionate about animals ever since I was very young. My sister (Shaheen Bhatt) and I would always rescue kittens and cats, foster them for some time and find them homes or keep them with us. My idea with this initiative is a world where man lives in harmony with animals and nature,” Alia told Mirror.  The Times of  India : 16th. May,17
