Irwin Family Launches Australian Wildlife Hospital

The Australian Wildlife Hospital at Australia Zoo launched Saturday on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. Timed to coincide with the second annual Steve Irwin Day, the opening ceremonies were attended by Steve’s widow Terri, and their children Bindi Sue, 10, and Robert, 5 next month.

Steve passed away in September 2006, after accidentally being pierced by a stingray’s barb.

I think Bindi is one of the cutest lil girls I have ever seen (and shes going to be a stunning woman too). She has such a unique face. And I love her name too. I think Bindi, Suri Cruise, and Ella Travolta are the cutest kids I’ve seen on celeb-babies. (I think I like the dark hair and light eyes although Bindi’s seem to be brown.)

It looks like the kids are going to follow in their dad’s footsteps. That little Bindi is the spitting image of her father.

Bindi is really pretty but I just can’t figure out who she looks like! I don’t see any of her parents in her. For some reason, I always thought she looked like Michelle Williams!

It’s been 2 years and I still can’t believe Steve passed away. World lost a amazing man. 😦
Bindi is unique. She is so Beautiful and have a such great personallity. Bob is getting big and handsome! I think he looks alot like Steve when he was child. Terry is GORGEUS and I’m sure she is a wonderfull mother.
I love this family so much. God bless them.

It’s still so hard to believe Steve really is gone.

It has been 2 years now… unbelievable.

The other day I was watching his show and just shaking my head in disbelief.

The kids are getting so big. Bindi is definitely the spitting image of her father and I can see some of Steve in Bob as well.

I’m sure Steve is looking down and smiling at the opening of the Wildlife Hospital.

Such a beautiful family. I’m glad they are carrying on with Steve’s work. You know Steve is looking down on them with pride. I remember crying the day I heard what happened to him. His loss was felt all over the world. Congrats to them and may the new hospital prosper.
