17-year-old Bindi Irwin is an international award-winning wildlife conservationist and celebrity who has inherited her father's passion for wildlife and wild places. Born to Wildlife Warriors Steve and Terri Irwin, Bindi was quite literally born on television! By the age of 9, Bindi had appeared on numerous American chat-shows, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Oprah and Larry King Live.
In 2005, Bindi launched her very own TV show, Bindi: The Jungle Girl, which won an Emmy in 2008 and was nominated for an Emmy again in 2009. 2013 marked a huge year for Bindi, with the additional launch of two new television shows, Bindi's Bootcamp and Steve Irwin's Wildlife Warriors -- the latter of which she starred alongside her mother Terri and brother Robert, with the series nominated for a 2013 TV Week Logie Award.
Bindi has co-created a range of books called Bindi Wildlife Adventures, as well as a clothing range, Bindi Wear International.
As an actress, Bindi played the lead-role in her first full-length feature film, Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove and starred in her first cinema release film Return to Nim's Island in 2013.
In 2014, Bindi was awarded the prestigious Australian Geographic Society’s Young Conservationist of the Year, an honour that she dedicated to her dad. This year, Bindi and her family accepted the Queensland Greats Award on behalf of Steve, and continues to carry on in his footsteps through work at Australia Zoo and around the world.
Bindi has dedicated her life to wildlife conservation and inspiring the next generation to make a difference in the world. She is a strong believer in kid empowerment and looks forward to spreading this message through her international filming work.
Bindi is partnered with Pro Derek Hough.
