In the wake of the horrible wildfires happening in Australia, shocking photos of their endangered wildlife have emerged.
Thankfully, the Irwin family have come to the rescue for many of the injured animals—continuing Steve Irwin’s legacy of rescuing and saving wildlife in danger.
Bindi Irwin (daughter of the late Steve Irwin) and her family, who own and operate the Australia Zoo, have dedicated the past few weeks to treating and saving as many animals as they can that have been hurt in the devastating wildfires.
So far, the zoo’s Wildlife Hospital have treated over 90,000 animals for injuries sustained!
This past Thursday, she took to instagram and emotionally shared: “With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much.”
The 21-year-old animal and environmental activist also confirmed that the Australia Zoo and their conservation properties are not endangered by fires
The zoo’s Wildlife Hospital has been “busier than ever,” Bindi said in the caption of the photo which shows her smiling in front of a picture of Steve and his mother holding a crocodile.
“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,” Bindi said.
