Bindi Irwin Vows to Follow in Her Father’s Footprints

30 Nov

Bindi and I both know the nature of things. My father too died in a tragic, almost too wisely timed accident-doing something he was expertly known for. In an interview with E! News, Bindi payed tribute to Steve on the 7th anniversary of his passing, calling the wildlife conservationist “the greatest dad on the planet.” For the first time, she gushed (in the most admirable way) about what her father meant to her, and how she plans to continue his legacy in any way she can.


Bindi insisted she and her brother Robert, along with their mother Terri, are determined to continue the work Steve started during his lifetime.

“We wanna make sure that his message of wildlife and conservation continues,” she said, ‘because he was the world’s greatest conservationist and so we never want that message to die.”

Bindi believes Steve was so successful because of his attitude towards wildlife, explaining:

“If you treat animals how you want to be treated, you’re a lot better off. So when he was working with venomous snakes or cheetahs, he just treated them in a 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.”

While the death of her father at such a young age devastated Bindi, she has such charisma and a zest for life that I think is so contagious.  Instead of dwelling on the past, she is using the knowledge her father passed down to her to propel her own destiny. She is such a great role model and I hope to be hearing more form her in the future!
