Bindi Irwin was very young when her father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin died. But he'll always be with her. She says:
"Dad was my superhero. He still is. He's the living breathing superhero of my life. My mom and dad are my biggest inspiration. And everything I do in my life is to make them proud."
The Return To Nim's Island star is making her parents proud right now by using her burgeoning stardom to carry on her father's message of protecting the Earth! She says:
If Steve Irwin were still alive, we'd have no doubt that he'd be super proud of these awesome pictures of his wife and daughter.
Bindi Irwin was spotted with her mother Terri Irwin leaving a hotel in Sydney, Australia, and the girl was anything BUT camera-shy!
She was seen hopping up and down, giving the thumbs-up, leaning against a tree with a big ol' smile on her face, and ton of other stuff.
We guess being nervous just quite isn't her thing!
She's a lot like her old man in that sense.
Steve Irwin was of course the famous host of Crocodile Huner who passed away in a freak accident in 2006.
Actually, Bindi looked to be wearing what was his famous outfit in this picture. Here she's wearing a short-sleeved safari shirt, khaki shorts and matching Converse kicks.
Look out world!
We have a feeling this girl is going to be a star!!!

Is the Crocodile Hunter back? Not quite but his son is almost there!
Over the Easter weekend, Steve Irwin's eight year old son, Robert, fed some American alligators in Queensland.
In front of 200 people!!!!
Steve used to hold his baybay while feeding crocs and gators, so this kid isn't worried.
Be careful though!

The Sea Shepherd has a fleet of several ships, and one of them has been seriously damaged by a giant rogue wave.
It seems pretty serious and the rescue is still under way.
The Brigitte Bardot, the ship that was damaged, issued a distress signal.
“Steve Irwin responds to a distress call issued by the Brigitte Bardot. Brigitte Bardot was very seriously damaged by a powerful wave which has cracked the bow and the pontoon.
The Steve Irwin reported that they are currently facing the storm to reach the position of Brigitte Bardot, some 240 nautical miles South West. It will be on-site in approximately 20 hours.
The Steve Irwin and will ensure the safety of the crew and then plans to escort the ship damaged in Fremantle for repairs.”
The Steve Irwin is another ship in the Sea Shepherd fleet and it is on its way to rescue the damaged ship.
The entire crew of the Brigitte Bardot is in our thoughts, and we hope for a speedy and successful rescue.

An Oklahoma woman suffering from depression has found solace in the company of an unusual companion, but local city officials worry that the therapy pet – a partially paralyzed kangaroo – could become a public safety risk.
Christie Carr is seeking an exemption to keep Irwin, a 25-pound great red kangaroo that she cares for much like a child.
Irwin rides in a car seat, is dressed in a shirt and pants each day and is rarely away from his doting caretaker.
At the advice of her therapist, Carr began volunteering at a local animal sanctuary, where she met Irwin, then just a baby. Less than a week later, the kangaroo named for famed Australian animal expert Steve Irwin ran into a fence, fracturing his neck and causing severe brain damage.
Carr volunteered to take the animal home and, while nursing him back to health, developed a bond.
Carr is totally dependent on Irwin,
"Irwin will not live if I have to give him up. I can't imagine a day living without him."
We hope they get to stay together too!
