The late Steve Irwin aka “The Crocodile Hunter,” was possibly one of the most fearless television personalities that ever lived. A conservationist and zookeeper at the Australian Zoo, Steve was known for his long-running series The Crocodile Hunter, which followed him and his wife Terri as they captured and relocated some of the wild’s most feared crocodiles and snakes. After his sudden and tragic death in 2006, caused by an attack from a deadly stingray, the world mourned his loss.

In his memory, Steve left behind his wife and his two young children, his daughter Bindi and his son Robert. Although he may be gone, his legacy still lives on through his family, who each dedicate their lives to wildlife conservation.

His older child, his daughter Bindi, is now all grown up. The 19-year-old is certainly following in his footsteps working at the Irwin family-owned Australian Zoo and constantly promoting the importance of protecting animals. She, like her father, has a passion for all creatures – even the most dangerous ones. Bindi’s well-followed Instagram page, filled with photos of her hanging out with Tigers, spiders, snakes, and of course – crocs – proves that she is indeed her father’s child.

A legacy

The late, great, and fearless Steve Irwin aka “The Crocodile Hunter” was an Australian zookeeper and television personality. His eight-year wildlife documentary series, The Crocodile Hunter, featured him and his wife Terri capturing and relocating some of the wild’s most dangerous creatures, in particular crocodiles. Steve sadly passed away in September 2006, while on location at Batt Reef, Australia filming his new documentary series Ocean’s Deadliest. During a break between shots, Steve decided to go snorkeling in order to capture footage for his daughter Bindi’s children’s nature show, Bindi the Jungle Girl, it was then that a stingray stabbed Steve, taking his life. Today, almost 12 years since his death, his daughter Bindi is all grown up and living in his legacy.

All grown up

It is safe to say that Steve would be proud of his now 19-year-old daughter. She has been following her parents’ footsteps by working as a conservationist and wildlife philanthropy advocate herself. She loves animals so much, that she lives at the Australian Zoo that her family owns. You may also recall her as a contestant on the ABC dance competition series Dancing With the Stars’s 21st season, which she won first place. The young activist donated all of her prize money from the contest to wildlife conservation. Nowadays, she has been shocking her 1.7 million followers on Instagram with her photos, often of her posing with poisonous snakes, feeding snapping alligators, or cuddling frightening tarantulas.
