Bindi Irwin Calls Steve Irwin ‘Greatest Dad On The Planet’

Bindi, a TV personality and actress, told E! News what it’s like to live on a zoo!

“I have spent my entire life living in a zoo, which is pretty crazy. Not many kids get to say that,” Irwin said. “It took me until I was about three years old to realize that we didn’t just come to the zoo every day, that we actually lived here. Every day we’d wake up and come to the zoo and I’d think, ‘We’re coming to the zoo again. This is great!’ We literally live right in the middle of the zoo and it means that every day is a new experience and so much fun.”

Her passion for animals comes from being the daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter. “He was the greatest dad on the planet,” she stated.

Bindi Irwin Shares Favorite Piece Of Advice From Steve Irwin

Bindi and her family are making that Steve’s passions and efforts aren’t forgotten, by carrying on his message.

“[Steve] was our inspiration, who we looked up to the most and, for us, we want to carry on his legacy. We want to make sure that his message of wildlife and conservation continues, because he was the world’s greatest conservationist and so we never want that message to die,” Bindi told the outlet.

“With dad, he was the ultimate wildlife warrior and we admired him more than anything. Dad honestly was incredible. We never got nervous about him with animals, but I do remember he gave me a piece of advice that has stuck with me forever. He said, ‘You have to treat animals the way you wish to be treated.’ Which is so true. I think if you go about it with that kind of attitude, it’s brilliant,” she stated.

Do YOU think it’s sweet that Bindi is honoring her father’s legacy, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
