Alia Bhatt is an animal lover and it is no secret. She has two cute little cats, Sheeba and Edward. On Mother’s Day after spending some time with her mother, Soni Razdan, it seems like Alia Bhatt headed straight to Dahanu, about 110 km away from Mumbai to participate in an event organised by Wildlife Conservation And Animal Welfare Association (WCAWA). According to their Facebook page, ‘

According to their Facebook page, ‘WCAWA runs a rescue and rehabilitation center for reptiles and wildlife, on the campus of Dahanu Forest Division.’ Alia Bhatt drove all the way for 3 hours to this place to release a 30-year-old Green Sea Turtle, which was rescued by the centre 2 months ago, back into its habitat. In the video that Alia Bhatt posted on her  Instagram account, she can be seen watching the turtle, named Queen by the centre workers and volunteers, slowly making her way into the sea.

Here’s a photograph of the Green Sea Turtle, ‘Queen’ which Alia posted on Instagram:
