Bindi Irwin to be face of father's charity, Wildlife Warriors

10/02/2006 at 02:00 AM ET

The daughter of the recently passed Australian icon and animal activist, Steve Irwin, is now going to be the face of her father’s charity, Wildlife Warriors. Bindi, 8, will feature in advertisements and promotions for the charity, which aims to protect injured, threatened or endangered wildlife. The charity was set up in 2002 by Steve and his wife, Terri and will live on through Bindi and Bob, 2.

The first promotional item for Wildlife Warriors is a green wristband, which can be purchased so far just in Australia, from leading newsagents for $1.

I hate to be cynical,
but I suspect those green
bracelets will become like
the pink [breast cancer] and
yellow ones; people will start
buying them from, say, a novelty
store that doesn’t pay to the charity
or they’ll get one for free
froms someone. It’s sad to
see a good cause turn into
“Who cares what it’s for, I’m in
fashion !” : (

I think that’s so wonderful! Bindi is such a brave and intelligent little girl. If I have a daughter someday, I hope she’s just like her :).

Can’t think of a better person to take over the task! What an amazing and bright little girl she is. I know she’ll do a wonderful job and I know Steve is watching over her and he must be so proud of her right now.

Way to go Bindi!

Yup, she’ll do just fine. She’s so smart and she knows what she wants, she wants to be just like her father :)

AllisonJenny, yea, that might happen, but there’s always going to be people who buy them from authorized places. I currently have 3 support bands, 2 our school was selling for the causes (ONE and the breast cancer one) and one is from Brian Littrell’s Healthy Heart Foundation, which I bought from their site (3 of them actually). Just cause the people who do really care, will always make sure the money gets where it’s supposed to go. People shouldn’t even need the bands to donate money to the cause, it just helps bring awareness.

I love this family. I watched the interview with Terri and thought she was an amazing woman.
I’m with Ash – I too want a daughter just like Bindi.

Bindi is a very special little girl, her daddy would be so proud of her to carry on with with his conservation work that he felt so dear about.
He was such a proud father and his spirit will live on forever in his children.
God bless to all the family.

I think Bindi is such a great girl who will have the world behind her 100% with anything she ever does, I alos think it’s great that she would like to carry on Steve’s work & I think Terri is just a amazing woman, her heart had just been broken with the 1 of the worst fear’s in her life happening and she still managed to do live interview’s with both Ray Martin & the American lady reporter, I take my hat off to Terri and Bindi, I don’t how they can do it, I was a blubbering mess just reading and watching Terri’s interview’s, RIP Steve, Your A True Blue Aussie Legend Mate & look forward seeing more of Terri & Bindi’s work with Wildlife Warrior’s and all of Steve’s work carried on by his family
