Steve Irwin, “The Crocodile Hunter,” was known for his kind heart, explorer’s soul, and passion for conservation. In 2006, Irwin passed away after being stabbed through the heart by a stingray’s barb. He left behind his beloved wife Terri and two small children, Bindi and Robert.
The world grieved with the Irwins, but the brave family never lost the joy Steve had inspired.
Now 12 years after Steve’s death, his family has a new chance to share the love of nature with a new generation. This week Animal Planet announced their new show “Crikey! It’s The Irwins.”
“I am so happy to announce that our brand new Animal Planet series will premiere on October 28th,” Bindi announced with cheer. “We can’t wait to share our story with you as we continue Dad’s important work. This feels like a beautiful new life chapter. I hope to see you there.”
Bindi, now 20-years-old, has followed in her father’s footsteps as a TV personality, conservationist, and photographer.
