Bindi Irwin recently announced her partnership with SeaWorld through a new online program titled "Generation Nature". She is also appearing in fundraising ads before SeaWorld's "One Ocean" Shamu show to raise money for the SeaWorld-Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
"Generation Nature" is a series of "webisodes" on SeaWorldKids.com that educates children about marine life and encourages them to be game changers in their world and support conservation.
In 2013, a documentary film called Blackfish was released. It accuses SeaWorld of mistreating their animals and calls for an end to killer whale captivity. Many people have watched it on CNN or Netflix, and a lot of people dislike SeaWorld. Because of this, people are urging Bindi to end her partnership with SeaWorld.
But this partnership has nothing to do with captive animals. It is designed to inspire kids to action when it comes to caring for their world. People who hate SeaWorld claim to love animals, so why do they want to stop conservation?
If this is something you Care2 support, please sign and share! We'd love to reach 5,000+ signatures by Bindi's birthday, July 24. If you dislike SeaWorld, but support conservation, we invite you to sign. This isn't about captivity...this is about caring.
Dear Ms. Irwin,
Concerned citizens all over the world have watched Blackfish, a 2013 documentary that is critical of SeaWorld's orca captivity practices. The fans of this film are now urging you to end your partnership with the company.
The people from all over the world who have signed this petition stand behind you and your conservation efforts, and encourage you to stand strong. After all, we can all be game changers!
