They haven't looked good for a long while
Here another link for the same story.
To think I had the utmost respect for them... It's sad really, Bob and Bob just watch as Bindi hogs the media, desperate to be noticed and Terri drives for the money. I feel like it wasn't what Stevo wanted.
Of course Terri guns for the money she was the one who turned the whole Steve irwin crocodile hunter thing into a franchise. Do you blame Bindi? She is only 17 she isn't even an adult yet, she would be like most teenage girls given the chance, get as much media attention as you can while you can. She has been in the spotlight since she was a child (I watched a LOT of Steve irwin related stuff including progrmas involving or hosted by Bindi haha god I sound like a stalker lol).
in the society in which we live money is a necessary evil if we want to achieve dreams, otherwise it often just ends up as talk!
Bindi would proberly be doing the same thing as she's doing now if her Dad was alive and shes the only one getting attention because she's the only one thats marketable. That zoo is a huge contribution to Australia. Show some respect.
I know... They are nice people (I've met them) and I have no beef with the zoo but I feel like the whole scheme is kind of deteriorating, the wildlife hospital. Steve was someone who I admired, heck all his family but again... I feel like the whole Australia zoo wildlife warriors is kind of losing it's mojo. Just my 2 cents, sorry if I came across disrespectful but lets just say I have a bit of a beef with Bindi (I won't get any more personal from here, it's a long depressing story and I'm definitely not sharing any more on the net).
Some more of the story.
Sounds like a simple case of workplace bullying and harassment by one sociopath.
The outcomes are regretable, but there will be recovery.
Few people seem to know that Steve Irwin was dead against the private keeping of reptiles, so he was definitely not supportive of most of the members here. Says quite a bit as far as I'm concerned. Poor Bindi, she may be quite a nice person underneath that ghastly, fabricated gushing public persona.
Yeah, I heard the same thing back in the 90's from a few who worked there. Once Steve knew that you were an amateur herp, you were mud to him.
It would of really annoyed him if he knew how many reptile keepers look up to him and that he inspired them to become reptile keepers.
I think Bindi needs to stop dancing and start looking after the animals lol.
I think most people would find that while Terry would be on the board of directors, her and Bindi will have very little if anything to do with daily operations - even when they were in the country. So I find it a little more than unreasonable to put the blame for any of this at their feet...
I agree that they don't really do much with their zoo, but they create problems in their own right. I'll sound like an A-hole for saying this but they are using Steve's death to make their own profit / fame, which is a bit ridiculous. "Dad would have been proud" "This is for dad" etc etc to make sympathy for herself, therefore gaining fame.
Stevo would be turning in his grave because of Brian Barzcyk, who was inspired by him and now has more captive snakes than anyone else.

Also, since when was "conservation" a marketing slogan, and not the act of conserving the environment?
