Bindi Irwin rests a penguin on her lap during her appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday (March 6) in New York City.
The 15-year-old wildlife conservationist was joined by her mom Terri and brother Robert.
“They are gorgeous,” Bindi said about the penguins. “We love them desperately. But if you’d like, can I make my big announcement? 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 become game changers for wildlife and wild places.”
Bindi continued, “I’m so excited to be carrying on in dad’s footsteps and making sure that everything he worked so hard for continues for the generations to come. That’s why I’m thrilled to be empowering kids, because as kids we are the next generation, we’re the next voters, we’re the next decision makers, and the next generation to really be changing the world.”
