At only fourteen years old, Bindi Irwin exudes her father’s confidence, spirit and passion for the world and its creatures. And, while it seems like she was a young girl just days ago, Bindi kicked off an Asian tour to promote Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors, a new Discovery Kids program that features her family’s efforts to continue the legacy of her late father and wildlife conservationist, Steve Irwin.
Bindi, her mom, Terri, and her brother, Robert, also took time to stop by our Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore to share their message of conservation with employees. Highlights of the tour that had stops in Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila and Kuala Lumpur included:
- A tree planted in honor of Bindi’s achievements in wildlife conservation at the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore’s new Children’s Garden
- A hybrid orchid named after Bindi at the Singapore Botanic Gardens
- A visit to a Hong Kong school, where Bindi met with over 300 primary school students and shared her experiences as a teenage conservationist, inspiring many students to do their part to help the environment
- An invitation by the Ark Avilon Zoo for the Irwin siblings to name two animals. Bindi chose to name a crocodile “Warrior,” while Robert name a lizard “Bindi.”
Take a peek at some photos from our beloved Irwins and we hope they inspire you as much as they do us!
