The Irwins have stepped in to help as many animals as they can in the midst of the devastating Australian bushfires. They have helped to care for over 90,000 animals in the Australia Zoo, which is currently safe and free of the bushfires. However, it has been reported that more than a billion animals have officially died as a result of the flames. That number has sadly been increasing.
Bindi Irwin recently posted a photo of her late father, Steve Irwin, with a kangaroo. She says in her post how she wishes her father were still alive to guide her through this terrible time.

“Dad spent his life working so hard to protect wildlife and wild places, especially in Australia. I wish he was here right now to give advice and strength during this time of devastation with the bushfires,” Bindi says on Instagram. “I know that his spirit lives on through our conservation work and I hope together we can make him proud. 💙🙏🏼”
As a result, Bindi’s post was met with so much love and positive words. The Kangaroo Sanctuary replies to Bindi’s post, “What a beautiful photo ❤️ Your dad did amazing work. And you all do amazing work too. He’d be proud as you were proud of him.” Another person says, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a family carry out their father’s legacy the way you all have. That man was a hero of mine, and it brings me to tears to see you all reflect on him so much. Your father is SO proud of you and lives on through you, your brother, and everyone else in the world that he was able to touch and inspire. Y’all are doing AMAZING things.”
One person has asked on her post how we can help from abroad. One of the best ways to help is by donating to the Australia bushfire relief fund. Many celebrities such as singer Pink and Sir Elton John have donated generous amounts to help the wildfire crisis.
