While many celebrities have distanced themselves from SeaWorld following the release of the eye-opening documentary “Blackfish,” one famous teen has decided to become their new ambassador.

Bindi Irwin, daughter of the beloved wildlife expert Steve Irwin, went on Good Morning America this morning to announce her new collaboration with the controversial theme park.

Sitting beside her mother Terry, brother Robert and two Magellanic penguins, the clueless 15-year-old said, “We are so thrilled to finally 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.”

Mysteriously, there was no mention of “Blackfish” in the interview or the storm of criticism it sparked surrounding the park’s captive orca breeding program. The film chronicled the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was attacked by a 12,000 pound orca whale named Tilikum in 2010. Numerous petitions have circulated online since then, calling for SeaWorld executives to release the park’s captive whales and dolphins back into the wild, but to no avail.

Sadly, it’s estimated that SeaWorld did a record $1.46 billion in revenue last year.

Urge Bindi to do the right thing and step down as SeaWorld ambassador.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
