Say hello to Bindi Irwin, daughter of legendary ‘Crocodile Hunter’, Steve Irwin!
She turns 17 soon and plans to work at the Australia Zoo, full-time.
“I have spent my entire life living in a zoo, which is pretty crazy. Not many kids get to say that”
“It took me until I was about three years old to realize that we didn’t just come to the zoo every day, that we actually lived here”
“I remember he gave me a piece of advice that has stuck with me forever”
“If you treat animals how you want to be treated, you’re a lot better off”
Bindi started appearing on televisions from the age of two!
“With dad, he was the ultimate wildlife warrior and we admired him more than anything”
Bindi also hosted a wildlife documentary for kids called, ‘Bindi the Jungle Girl’.
“When [Irwin] was working with venomous snakes or cheetahs, he just treated them in a [certain] way”
“It was never trying to overpower them or anything like that”
“He was just loving them”
“And he was teaching other people about how beautiful they are”
“Telling people how to respect snakes and respect crocodiles and to love them”
“And I think if you go about it with that kind of attitude, it’s brilliant”
Bindi plans on carrying on her father’s legacy by working full-time at the Australia Zoo.
