It’s been just over 10 years since the world lost one of the greatest and most caring humans ever to have lived. We’re referring to Steve Irwin, who left behind a massive legacy — and his daughter Bindi is a huge part of that. To celebrate her father on this Steve Irwin Day, Bindi dedicated a heartfelt tribute to the beloved Crocodile Hunter.

Irwin tragically died back in 2006 after he was pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming an underwater documentary called Ocean’s Deadliest. And to honor this wonderful man November 15th has been dubbed the annual Steve Irwin Day, an international event honoring the life and legacy of everyone’s favorite crocodile hunter.

To contribute her own words of love on this day, Bindi posted a beautiful tribute to her dad on Instagram, encouraging her followers to keep her dad’s spirit and mission to love all wildlife alive.

Bindi won the 21st season of Dancing with the Stars along with her partner with Dereck Hough. Her former dancing partner dedicated his own heartfelt tribute to Bindi and her dad for the same cause.

On the 10th anniversary of Irwin’s death, Bindi posted a picture and message on Instagram that broke everyone’s collective hearts.

Sending so much love to Bindi and her family, now and always.
