Watch Bindi Irwin Give And Emotional Speech As Steve Irwin Is Honored With Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Though it’s been 13 years since the tragic death of Australian conservationist and animal activist Steve Irwin his legacy continues.

This is, in large part, due to the efforts of his widow Terri Irwin and their children Bindi and Robert Irwin who have continued Irwin’s work of animal advocacy and work with the Australia Zoo.

Last year, Irwin was posthumously honored with a star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” and his family was in attendance at the unveiling wearing the same zookeeper uniforms that Irwin was famous for sporting.

In a ceremony in Los Angeles, Terri, Robert, and Bindi Irwin all spoke, expressing their gratitude for the honor and their hope that people will continue to follow Steve Irwin’s legacy of generosity and caring for the natural world and its creatures.

Bindi Irwin, in particular, praised those in attendance as “the most amazing wildlife warriors” and said “We try to continue Dad’s legacy each and every day. And we want to make sure that everything he lived and died for continues on into the future.”

Fighting tears Irwin added that “I never in my wildest dreams imagine that this would become a reality. And this is such an honor, as a family to continue on in Dad’s footsteps.”
