If there’s anyone who personifies a love of all animals and those that have been weak and left behind, it is young Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late Steve Irwin from the Australia Zoo.
Bindi is now 18-years-old and following in the footsteps of her famous father, who died after a stingray attack in 2006.
The Australia Zoo Rescue Unit takes in sick and injured wildlife and gets them the finest veterinary care needed. Koalas, crocodiles, flying foxes, sea turtles, birds, etc., are the kinds of animals the zoo rescues with its highly trained staff. The rescue unit receives some 500 calls per month, mainly from the Greater Sunshine Coast Region.
Young Bindi has dedicated her life to wildlife conservation. She has authored a collection of books called Bindi Wildlife Adventures and launched two television shows about wildlife. She strongly believes that young minds must be taught about the value of protecting wildlife and its future around the world
Most recently, Bindi celebrated the 10-year passing of her beloved father, marking November 15th as Steve Irwin Day in Australia. Bindi posted touching photos of her and her dad, the popular Crocodile Hunter, to social media sites like Twitter and Instagram. Immediately, those sentimental images tugged at the world’s heartstrings. One pic on Instagram received more than 42,200 likes from followers. The photo shows an adorable scene of baby Bindi in her daddy’s arm, as they spot a crocodile in the distance. It’s a cute, matching khaki moment.
