|Ask Bindi Irwin to Step Down as SeaWorld Ambassador|
Last week, Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late "crocodile hunter" Steve Irwin, announced her partnership with SeaWorld as its new ambassador. Her goal is to encourage kids to get involved with wildlife.
How SeaWorld actually operates is far from kid-friendly, and is not the best place to teach youth about respecting wildlife. Documentaries like Blackfish and The Cove showed us that creatures like orcas and dolphins are torn away from their habitats, and held captive for means of entertainment and profit. Teaching this to future generations -- or hiding the truth from them as it continues -- is not the answer.
Popular figures like Bindi Irwin who have a large influence on youth have the opportunity to be mindful and truthful about what they actively promote.
For today's Daily Action, ask Bindi Irwin to step down as SeaWorld's new Ambassador.
