Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late wildlife expert Steve Irwin, has definitely grown up since the last time the public may remember her, as the darling 8-year-old who gave a heartwarming eulogy at her father's memorial.
Today, Bindi is now 14 years old and although she may not look the same as she did 7 years ago, her passion for teaching others about how to protect the world's wildlife is as strong as ever.
Currently, Bindi is co-starring with Matthew Lillard in a new kid's feature film entitled, Return to Nim's Island. In the film, the character Nim (Bindi) and her father (Matthew Lillard) work together to protect the endangered wildlife on their beloved island from threatening resort developers and animal poachers. The film's message of protecting the world's animals and their natural habitats is much like the one that Bindi and her family have been working to convey to people.
According to an interview with the Australian Associated Press (AAP) Bindi explained, "I’d like to continue to spread my message on conservation and make sure my dad’s message—his legacy—lives on.”
Australia is home to exquisite wildlife and breathtakingly beautiful scenery that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. From the country's beloved kangaroo, koala and dingo populations, to its world-famous Outback and Blue Mountains, Australia is truly a place filled with natural beauty. And now, it's more important than ever for people to get involved and help protect these natural wonders. From taking Blue Mountain day tours to learn about and experience Australia's one-of-a-kind environment and wildlife first hand, to donating time or money to various conservation charities, it is important for people to come together and protect Australia's wildlife.
