Bindi And Robert Celebrated Their Dad On Steve Irwin Day

Two weeks ago, the family honored the late "Crocodile Hunter" on Steve Irwin Day. Robert shared a tribute to his dad on Instagram. "Today is Steve Irwin Day. It’s a day to remember everything Dad was about - conservation, dedication, fun and family. It never ceases to amaze me what an impact Dad had on the world when I see people in every corner of the globe celebrating his life and legacy on this special day. ❤️"

Many of Steve's fans commented on the impact he made on the world. "Your dad was an utterly superb human. And his life force was so strong, so palpable, it’s no surprise it lives on beyond his physical death. I will always treasure the time I had with him, your mum, Bindi and you. And my god! Did he love you kids!!" one person wrote.

Another follower added, "Your father's passion set my heart into orbit for this planet. I have always been incredibly sensitive to animals and nature- seeing your dad on the screen as my 5 year old self, first time watching TV in America, I was simply consumed. He was and continues to be a constant reminder that being lukewarm about what you love is just not enough... you set that heart on fire and kindle it forever! Beyond thankful to see you, your sister and mom keep his spirit so very alive."
