Steve Irwin’s son recreates a famous image of his father and it’s gone viral

Fans of wildlife warrior Steve Irwin were left heartbroken when he died after an encounter with a stingray barb; news of his death sent shockwaves around the world.

Australia’s internationally renowned Crocodile Hunter died after his heart was pierced by the stingray barb in 2006.

Thankfully, the amazing conservation work he was committed to did not go to waste. His devoted wife Terri and their two children Bindi and Robert continue his legacy at Australia Zoo.

Now his 15-year-old son Robert has shown how committed he is to continue the great work of his father and a recent photo showing him following in his footsteps has gone viral.

He may only be 15 but Robert is no stranger to the TV cameras and always makes a point of paying tribute to the great work of his father.

The young wildlife warrior hosts “Robert’s Real Life Adventures”, a program on his family’s zoo’s internal TV network.

He has also co-created a book series called “Robert Irwin: Dinosaur Hunter” and currently stars on the Animal Planet series “Crikey! It’s the Irwins” alongside his mom and sister.

Now Robert has recreated an image of his dad feeding the same crocodile 15 years later.

After posting the image on social media, he received over 400,000 likes with so many of the family’s fans praising Robert and saying that his father Steve would be proud.

Robert’s older sister Bindi is also committed to wildlife conservation and donates 10 percent of her wages at the Australia Zoo to her family’s charity, Wildlife Warriors.

Bindi told LADbible that they work hard every single day to continue their father’s legacy.

“With our work with Australia Zoo and our non-profit organization Wildlife Warriors, every single day of our lives is spent continuing Dad’s legacy and making sure that everything he lived for and worked so hard for carries on into the future.”

Such an inspirational family who work tirelessly in the crucial field of wildlife conservation.

I’m sure Steve is looking down on his kids so proud of what they have become.

Please share to pay tribute to this great family and to the memory of Steve Irwin.
