Every day is Take Your Child to Work Day for Bindi Irwin and her seven-month-old daughter Grace Warrior.
Celebrity animal wrangler and zookeeper Bindi Irwin’s home away from home is the Australia Zoo. The 23-year-old was practically raised by her parents Steve and Terri inside the famous gates. And now that she’s an adult, she works for the zoo by educating visitors on the importance of conservationism while snuggling with the resident creatures.
Now that Bindi is grown with a family of her own, she’s carrying forth the Irwin legacy by bringing her daughter, Grace Warrior, to the zoo as often as possible. And with that legacy in mind, Bindi created a new tradition. Almost every night, Grace, Bindi, and Bindi’s husband Chandler Powell enjoy a stroll through the zoo grounds.
On Monday (November 15th) the Crocodile Hunter star snapped a sweet picture with Grace and her Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Piggy, before they headed out for their walk. In the picture, Grace is strapped into her pink running-stroller—and she’s ready to say hi to her Australia Zoo friends.
Bindi Irwin also tagged her husband, who just celebrated his 25th birthday with a huge party at the zoo.
“Evening walks through the @AustraliaZoo gardens with my sweet little fam,” she captioned. “Best part of my day, every day.”
Bindi Irwin Shares Heartbreaking Tribute To Late Father Ahead of Steve Irwin Day
Every year, Bindi Irwin celebrates her late father on November 15. And this year, she marked the special day with a childhood photo and a heartbreaking tribute.
November 15th is Steve Irwin day. The Australian holiday celebrates the life and legacy of the famous Crocodile Hunter, who suffered a tragic and shocking death in 2006.
Ahead of the holiday, his daughter took to Instagram to remember her father in a short and poignant post.
“Your legacy will live on forever. I love you for even longer,” she captioned. “November 15, Steve Irwin Day.”
In the photo, a much younger Bindi and her father are posing on the shores of the Australian coastline.
Fifteen years ago Steve, a lifelong conversationalist, was filming an episode of a new television series on the Great Barrier Reef. As he was swimming, a stingray pierced the 44-year-old’s heart. And because of the poisonous venom, he died almost immediately.
In 2002, Steve created the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation (now called Wildlife Warriors) to educate the public on endangered species. After his passing, his wife and two children continued to run the foundation in Steve’s honor.
