Bindi Irwin’s original un-edited essay regarding overpopulation

In 2013, 14-year-old wildlife campaigner Bindi Irwin was invited by Hillary Clinton to write an article for Hillary’s e-Journal on why she had chosen to devote her life’s work to wildlife conservation. She wrote about needing to end population growth.

But when Hillary’s team sent back the proofs, they’d edited out those parts. So Bindi withdrew her article, and published the full text on social media.

The incident attracted headline news. In this video, she reads her essay – so much more powerful in her own voice.
