    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.

    Bindi’s post comes as footage emerged showing dozens of kangaroos fleeing for their lives from the bushfires ravaging the state of New South Wales (NSW).

    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."
