MISS Fiji Sugar Corporation Losalini Loloma captivated the crowd during the queen's talent night on Thursday with an original play promoting a healthy marine environment.
The Kia lass' spectacular performance included a group of children dressed as marine species.
Ms Loloma told the hundreds gathered at the Festival of the Friendly North TFL Global Night at Labasa's Subrail Park that some marine species were becoming endangered and it was important to look after the marine environment.
"The onus is on us to look after our marine ecosystem and ensure that species are not endangered," she said.
"Overfishing and coral extraction are among activities that harm our marine life. South African president Nelson Mandela once said, 'o one is born hating another person for the colour of his skin, background or religion'.
"People can be taught to love for love comes naturally to a human heart than the opposite."
Ms Loloma said if people learnt to love themselves, they could also learn to love the environment they live in.
Also on Thursday, Miss Labasa Town Council Elizabeth Sophia Lakalaka Rawalui performed a dance that depicted how we could maintain a healthy heart.
