New Delhi [India], Mar.23 (ANI): Jacqueline Fernandez, with much talked about projects in her kitty, is surely gonna have a good 2017. However, it is not just movies on her mind now, she is all ready to take up social causes as well. The 'Roy' star will associate herself with the cause of marine conservation as she plans to lend support to the environmental cause, in order to save marine life. Jacqueline shares, "Around the world, marine ecosystems are being threatened, degraded, damaged or destroyed by human activities, one of which is pollution. Taking a stroll along any beach or a ride on a ferry, one will get an idea of just how much litter is floating around in the form of the sand strewn with plastic bottles, fish boxes, light bulbs, flip-flops, scraps of fishing net or timber." Further adding, "The scene is the same the world over, for the seas are full of garbage. I've witnessed this many times on the ferry to Alibaug or to Madh Island and it's an extremely disheartening sight. I really feel we need to educate people and spread awareness on Marine conservation." The thought of marine conservation has been always in her mind and the actress is looking forward to creating awarness on the cause. "We can start with the smallest of steps to contribute towards Marine Conservation, like restricting or reducing our use of plastic products as plastic end up as ocean debris contributing to habitat destruction and entangling and killing tens of thousands of marine animals each year. We can also help by not littering beaches and waterways, disposing off waste in an environmentally safe way and reusing and recycling whenever possible," she said. On a related note, Jaqueline will be next seen in 'Reload,' alongside Siddharth Malhotra. (ANI)
