This is so sweet!!
Bindi Irwin paid tribute to her dad Steve over the weekend, commemorating Australia’s celebration of Father’s Day with a picture of her papa and some very touching words.
Posted to Instagram on Sunday, Bindi — who will be on Dancing With The Stars this season — reminisced about her dad nearly nine years to the day after he was killed by a stingray while filming a documentary.
See Bindi’s touching photo (below):
Thinking about home today. Father’s Day is today in Australia and everyone is celebrating at Australia Zoo ├░┼╕┼Æ┬╛ It’s such a special time of year, I hope everyone who comes to the zoo today is able to enjoy it with our gorgeous animals. No matter where I am in the world, this day means such a lot to me. My heart forever lives @AustraliaZoo – just like Dad’s always did.A photo posted by Bindi Irwin (@bindisueirwin) on Sep 5, 2015 at 1:15pm PDT
Awwww! So bittersweet, but also so touching that Mr. Irwin is still in the minds of so many people — his love of animals and conservation certainly lives on through Bindi!
