Steve Irwin's Family Saved Over 90,000 Animals From Raging Australia Bushfires

We're positive Steve himself would be BEYOND proud of how hard his family is working to save the animals from this devastating fire in Australia. 

The fire in Australia has taken so much wildlife with it's destruction. However, not all hope is lost. Hope can be found in the Irwin name, where it can always be found. 

The legendary "Crocodile Hunter" has quite the incredible family who have dedicated their lives to continuing the family legacy as "wildlife warriors." And they are certainly living up to it. 

Thousands of Australians have been stepping up to save their land, whether that be volunteering to confront the waves of fire, donating to animal hospitals and charities, or working nonstop to mitigate the effects of the disaster. And among these incredible Australias is Bindi Irwin, Steve Irwin's daughter.

    Bindi has shared on Instagram that she has been hard at work, working alongside the staff at Australia Zoo, to help treat a record breaking number of wounded animals from the firestorms.

    "With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much. I wanted to let you know that we are SAFE. There are no fires near us @AustraliaZoo or our conservation properties. Our Wildlife Hospital is busier than ever though, having officially treated over 90,000 patients. 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."

    The Australia Zoo, run by Terri Irwin (Bindi's mother), usually sees 8,000 sick and injured animals per year, but that number skyrocketed since September.

    Mitchell Lyons, who filmed the tragic scene, said, "Look, they don't know which way to run from cars, but they sure know which way to run from fire."
