Bindi Irwin daughter of Steve Irwin announced her partnership with Sea World on “Good Morning Amercia.
"I am so thrilled to announce I will be joining SeaWorld on a brand new initiative called ‘Generation Nature,’ which is all about encouraging kids to get involved and be game-changers for wildlife and wild places," she said.
It is such a shame to see Bindi decide to support such a selfish business and still considers herself an “Animal advocate”. You would think a girl like her would understand the suffering these creatures go through since she is so educated on animal care.
Peta released this statement concerning Bindis new partnership with seaworld.
"The Irwin family has been exploiting animals for years, so it comes as no surprise that Bindi has agreed to become SeaWorld’s latest shill. But plastering her face on SeaWorld’s website won’t cover up the fact that orcas, dolphins, and other animals are suffering in SeaWorld’s tiny tanks after being ripped from their families. What millions have realized — through PETA’s massive campaign and the hit documentary "Blackfish" — is that SeaWorld is no place for anyone who truly cares about animals. Bindi’s talk-show appearances are just a flimsy last-ditch effort by an abusement park hoping to make a buck."
Even her grand father Bob Irwin posted this statement on his website for his foundation. While the statement was very well worded he states that he does not support the use of animals for entertainment.
“My personal stance is that any organization that keeps animals in captivity that does not consider and provide for that animal’s physical, mental and emotional needs should not be keeping that animal and other solutions should be sought out. The Bob Irwin Wildlife & Conservation Foundation Inc. and I do not support the use of captive animals for the performance of tricks with the intent of mere entertainment for financial gain.
My son fought tirelessly for the welfare of animals and for educating the public about conservation. Steve had a big heart for wildlife, and where he saw injustice and cruelty, he spoke out. Steve and I were as one on the issues of animal welfare, community education and engagement in conservation. I can only hope that this partnership between SeaWorld and my granddaughter, who has followed in Steve’s footsteps, results in the best possible outcomes for the welfare of all animals held in captive facilities around the world.
