Steve “Crocodile Hunter” Irwin died 8 years ago, but his daughter Bindi Irwin is continuing his legacy of animal conservation. The 16-year-old American citizen is in her final year of school where she is finishing Business and Tourism, after which she plans to work full time at Australia Zoo. Irwin’s Instagram has over 220,000 followers, and from the pictures, it’s clear that her father had a big impact on her life.
“With dad, he was the ultimate wildlife warrior and we admired him more than anything,” Irwin told eOnline. “I do remember he gave me a piece of advice that has stuck with me forever. He said, ‘You have to treat animals the way you wish to be treated.’ Which is so true.”
