The Irwin family is continuing Steve Irwin’s legacy of rescuing and saving wildlife in danger. Bindi Irwin, Steve’s daughter, and the rest of the Irwin family have rescued and treated over 90,000 animals, many of which were injured in Australia’s recent devastating wildfires. Ollie, an orphaned platypus, was patient No. 90,000 at the Wildlife Hospital.
… Bindi has confirmed that the Australia Zoo, which is owned and operated by the Irwin family, and their conservation properties are not endangered by the fires.
Bindi Irwin wrote on Instagram:
With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much. I wanted to let you know that we are SAFE. There are no fires near us@AustraliaZoo or our conservation properties. Our Wildlife Hospital is busier than ever though, having officially treated over 90,000 patients. My parents dedicated our Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital to my beautiful grandmother. We will continue to honour her by being Wildlife Warriors and saving as many lives as we can.
