Bindi Irwin is remembering her late father, Steve Irwin, and his love for animals. The Australian TV host and conservationist was at the peak of his career when he sadly passed away. He died in 2006 in a tragic incident involving a stingray off the coast of northern Australia and was 44 years old at the time. Bindi was just 8 years old and her brother Robert was only two at the time.

However, Irwin's children continue to keep his legacy alive and still remember him for his admiration of all living things and how he used his fame to save as many animals as possible. Recently, Bindi shared a touching video on Instagram of her dad trying to break up a fight between two feisty kookaburras. "This #flashback makes my heart happy," the "Crikey! It's the Irwins" star captioned the video. "Dad's kindness and love for all species will live on forever."

Irwin, known as "The Crocodile Hunter," arrived on his bike and helped separate two squawking birds by gently asking what was "going on" between the two. He later declared that a "kookaburra fight" was underway before grabbing both the opposing creatures and asking for peace. "Now stop it. You guys need to make up. You be friends now," he can be heard saying in the video as the kookaburras grabbed each other by the beaks. Eventually, he was able to end the fight, even imitating the birds' calls. "Crikey," he said before taking off again on his bike. "Day's work involves putting out fires, stopping fires, playing with the gators, koalas, kangaroos."

Bindi also admitted she sees her dad in her younger brother, Robert. While celebrating his 19th birthday on December 1 last year, she shared a silly picture of the two showing off their goofy side on Instagram. The younger Irwin sibling can be seen wincing with a hand on his head beside a low piece of wood with a sign that reads, "Watch your head." Joking about him being the taller sibling, Bindi also spoke of his "hilarious" sense of humor and "kind heart" and how he reminds her so much of their father.

Describing him as the "greatest brother in the world," she added, "I see so much of Dad in everything you do and I know he would be beyond proud of you. We all are. Thank you for being such a good uncle to Grace and a fantastic brother to me and Chandler. We love you and can't wait to celebrate today!" The 25-year-old shares a 2-year-old daughter, Grace Warrior, whom she welcomed in 2021 with her husband Chandler Powell, also 25. In response to his sister's sweet birthday tribute, the teen said, "Love you B, thank you!"

Robert also shares sweet tributes, remembering his late dad. Earlier this year, he shared a heartwarming moment he had with Irwin of himself as a toddler sitting on his dad's lap and holding the wheel of his father's car. "My dad's ute, it's a special car," Irwin captioned the post on Instagram. He also shared that when he was little, his dad "would park and pretend to let me drive." Both siblings appeared for their driver's tests in the car, which has sentimental value to the family.

In fact, the vehicle "still comes on road trips to this day," Robert revealed. Their mother, Terri Irwin, also got emotional and shared a post about seeing her son learn to drive her late husband's vehicle. "Remembering how much Robert loved being with Steve, parked at home pretending to drive," she said in her 2020 tweet on X (previously Twitter). "I know Steve would be incredibly proud."
