The petition wave has washed over Bindi Irwin.

In the wake of the 15-year-old conservationist’s bizarre and ill-informed decision to partner with SeaWorld, thousands are leaving their mark asking for her to reconsider and drop her association as a youth ambassador.

Ms. Irwin, please educate yourself about what happens in order for SeaWorld to purchase wonderful creatures like orcas and dolphins,” states one petition. “I do believe your father would not want you to participate in such cruelty and I am sure that you do not want to be a part of this either. Please reconsider your offer to be SeaWorld’s new Ambassador. Do it for the animals.”

Want to sign? Here are the petitions circulating at the moment:

Bindi Irwin, Please Step Down as SeaWorld Ambassador | Nearly 28,000 signatures

Bindi Irwin’s now an Ambassador for $ea World. Bindi should be helping all creatures and speaking up for them not being yet another greedy person that exploits them | Hundreds of signatures

Please do not collaborate with Sea World as Ambassador. First visit Taiji, Japan to see first-hand how dolphins are treated | Nearly 1,400 signatures

Beyond the petitions, people have also been flocking to Facebook pages associated with the young star. The 17,000 strong Totally Bindi page has been saturated with comments decrying the SeaWorld decision. The page for the Australia Zoo, founded by Bindi’s late father Steve Irwin, has also received a great deal of negative comments.

“Don’t sell out,” writes one commenter. “Sea world is buying you to help polish their image after Blackfish. There is a good and a bad side to most zoos and a disgustingly terrible side to many others. No matter what your feelings are on captivity everyone can agree that there are some animals that must never be caged.”

Month one of “the year of the vegan”

News outlets are abuzz with the promise of new vegan products, celebs, and services and how that is somehow a fresh affirmation that our world is one turn closer to being fully free from animal use.

What About: “No-Kill” Eggs?

Vegandale Brewery offers the ultimate vegan night out

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
