Bindi Irwin is all grown up and is continuing her father’s legacy. Steve Irwin was an amazing wildlife conservationist and his family, Teri, Bindi and Robert, are all doing the same thing. The three of them were on “Good Morning America” on Thursday as seen in the video posted by ABC News on March 6. The animal-loving teenager made a big announcement with the help of a cute penguin sitting on her lap.

The 15-year-old wildlife enthusiast told host Robin Roberts that she has teamed up with SeaWorld for a new initiative called Generation Nature to help encourage kids to become game changers and to become empowered. Bindi is now the youth ambassador for SeaWorld and is working with them to get kids involved, especially in the U.S. She has the exact same excitement and mannerism that her dad had, so it is no wonder that she is continuing his work with animals and wildlife.

Little brother Robert, 10, is a busy guy on his own as well with his wildlife books and is set to co-host his own show called “Wild But True” in Asia later this year. The youngest Irwin is just as passionate as his dad was about carrying on his tradition. He was only three when Steve Irwin died from a stingray in 2006, but he still has his own memories that he will hold close to him.

Mom Teri travels with her two fearless kids and is also quite busy at her home away from home at the Australian Zoo. The 39-year-old mom says that she is so proud of both of her wildlife warriors.

Bindi Irwin encourages kids to go to SeaWorld Kids website to check out how they can be a wildlife warrior as well.
