Bindi Irwin: All Grown Up!

Conservation expert Bindi Irwin and her mother Terri were spotted leaving their Sydney Hotel on Monday (March 11).

Since her father Steve Irwin’s death in 2006, Bindi and her family have carried on his legacy.

“The older I get, the more I want to tackle the issues people don’t want to talk about,” Irwin told the Australian Associated Press.

Even though Bindi works hard, she’s still a teenager. “I have friends who come to the Australia Zoo, and it’s just instead of playing video games, we get to hug and kiss a giraffe, or walk a tiger.” says Irwin.

“My life is certainly not common, but I think of myself as … a ‘normal’ teenager.”

The 14-year-old will star in Return to Nim’s Island, the sequel of the 2008 flick Nim’s Island – airing on the Hallmark Channel.

    I grew up watching Steve Irwin, and seeing Bindi all grown up makes me miss him so much. I didn’t even know the man, so I can’t imagine how much the Irwin family must miss him. Such an amazing family!

    Oh what a beautiful young lady she has become! Steve and Terri have done a wonderful job. She is a very mature lady for her age. She will definitely carry on her fathers legacy for sure! He would be so proud of her and her brother and his wife Terri. I am sure he is looking down upon them with such pride! Keep up your dad’s work Bindi!

    I love Bindi. I’ve adored her since how she handled herself at her father’s funeral, and I read an interview with her mother back then in which she said Bindi had made the decision to stop selling faux fur in the zoo’s gift shop because it gives the wrong message. If I had a daughter like Bindi, I’d be so immensely proud. x
