Interview with Bindi Irwin


Congratulations! What was the highlight of 2008 for you?

When we went to Alaska to do whale research on Humpback Whales. We’re working with Oregon State University to prove to the international Whaling Commission that non-lethal research can be done on these magnificent creatures.

What does 2009 hold for you?

2009 is going to be a beaut, bonza year. I am very excited because I have a filming project in Africa, which is where we have a conservation program helping support Cheetahs. We are helping by providing tracking collars for the Cheetah’s so they can be tracked and relocated if they ever get into a conflict with humans.

What was the biggest lesson you learned this year?

That my Daddy’s important work must continue and I am inspired by all the support my family has received. I’m determined to never give up!
Steve Irwin Day, on November 15, was a huge success. We have many Wildlife Warrior friends who are helping to keep my daddy’s dream alive.

Who’s the Aussie star shining brightly for you right now?

The veronicas are my shining stars because they’re lovely girls with great music as well as being ambassadors for Wildlife Warriors.

Have you made any New Year’s resolutions?

To stop a small mining company from destroying my daddy’s reserve in far north Queensland. It’s 135,000 hectares; chock-a-block full of wildlife, including some species that are rare and vulnerable, like the Palm Cockatoo.

What’s your favourite memory of 2008?

When we went to do crocodile and file snake research at the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in August. I got to do school on the reserve for a month and my classroom was under a big tree overlooking the Wenlock River.

What’s your message to the OK! Readers who voted for you?

I’d like to thanks everyone who voted for me so much, it means a lot. My daddy worked to change the world to make it a better place. If one man can make a difference, you can make a difference.
