Hearts Around the Globe are Breaking for Robert Irwin

Robert Irwin’s latest TikTok video tugged at the world’s heartstrings, prompting many to urge him to take a break from social media. The teenager is beloved by millions as the son of much-missed wildlife expert Steve Irwin.

Robert Irwin has been an inspirational example of dedication and hard work over the past decade, captivating millions from around the globe with his efforts at Australia Zoo alongside his mother Terri, and sister Bindi.

Steve Irwin was an Australian icon whose enthusiasm for nature, animals and their habitats made him a beloved figure around the world. His famous TV series The Crocodile Hunter showcased his personable attitude as he explored captivating wildlife from Australia to far-reaching corners of the globe. He will forever be remembered as a national treasure who advocated strongly for animal rights and the protection of endangered species.

His dedication to preserving the past showed through in his show, which aired for over 5 years and had 64 unforgettable episodes.

Steve’s love for wildlife was unparalleled, and it earned him admiration from people all over the world. Even beyond what he did on camera to protect Australia’s creatures, Steve went above and beyond in his commitment – a devotion that reached its ultimate expression when he married his soulmate in 1992.

Terri, the modern-day “Crocodile Hunter,” is a visionary author and environmentalist who has embraced an adventurous life by relocating from her native United States to Queensland in Australia. Together with Steve Irwin – the original Crocodile Hunter himself, Terri shines as one of conservation’s brightest stars.

Bindi and Robert Irwin experienced happily ever after when they tied the knot a union that was further blessed with two beautiful children. In 1998, Bindi made her grand entrance into the world while in 2003 welcomed little Robert Jr., creating an utterly picturesque family portrait.

From following in the footsteps of their father, Robert and Bindi were determined to reach success. Starting young, they worked tirelessly for many years until tragedy struck in 2006.

On a September day while snorkeling in the beautiful waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Steve experienced an unexpected fright. He was viciously attacked by a wild stingray barb and stabbed deeply in his chest – a testament to how dangerous life can be underwater. Fortunately, he survived this harrowing incident as part of shooting for Ocean’s Deadliest documentary series.

Steve tragically met his end when he encountered a stingray on his beloved Australian coast. Initially believing the barb had merely punctured his lung, it soon became apparent that its lethal touch had pierced straight through to Steve’s heart taking him from this world before anyone could intervene.

Despite our best efforts, it was already too late when we found him – a disastrous event that left us to sadly accept the devastating damage inflicted upon his heart.

We rushed back into the boat, frantically shouting encouragement to Steve who desperately pressed his hand against a wound. We reminded him of all he had to live for reminding him that giving up was not an option.

The underwater cameraman recalled how Steve looked up at him with a calmness that belied the news he was about to give that his life was slowly slipping away. Despite their efforts in providing CPR for an entire hour, transport back onto the main boat couldn’t save Steve from bidding this world farewell.

Tragically, a beloved father and husband were taken from his family far too soon. Though the paramedics were unable to save him, Terri and their children have been heartbroken by this loss ever since.

Time has passed, but the legacy of Steve Irwin lives on through his children. With Terri as their guide and mentor, Robert and Bindi have honed a passion for animal welfare that they inherited from their father which is honored by continuing Australia Zoo’s animal care program in Steve’s name. Their memories of him remain dear to each heart like treasured childhood friends never forgotten.

A loving family has multiplied their success, as Bindi and Robert have followed in the footsteps of Steve to become accomplished conservationists and zoologists. At 23 and 18 respectively, these siblings are already making a difference for wildlife around the world.

On Father’s Day, in honor of his late father, beloved conservationist and Australian TV personality Bindi Irwin took to the American airwaves to spread awareness about the Australia Zoo and her family-wide commitment to preserving wildlife.

Robert shared a heartwarming tribute to the person he loved most his dad! From playing with toys in the backyard to going on summer trips and creating lasting memories Robert cherished every moment spent with his best friend. He graciously remembered their times together by sharing an incredible video of their adventures for everyone to enjoy.

Father’s Day was filled with thoughtful sentiments and special memories for many people in the US. However, this Father’s Day may not have been so joyful for some who were unable to share it with their Dad a reality easily understood by the sympathetic 18-year-old whose heartstrings surely tugged at such news.

Robert dedicated his time to making a difference for animals, following in the footsteps of his beloved dad. But when he unexpectedly gained internet fame from an encounter with a croc that shocked viewers worldwide, it was clear there were two sides to Robert’s story.

Robert was at the zoo with a daring mission: to feed Casper, an incredibly aggressive crocodile. But as he went about his task of offering treats, it became abundantly clear that any kind of kindness would be for naught not only did Casper continue ignoring Robert’s offerings but actively tried attacking him! In what can almost certainly qualify as a close call from danger, visitors and keepers alike were left shocked by this unexpected display of aggression from such a majestic creature. Thankfully no harm came in the end all thanks to some swift action on behalf of our keeper who shouted “Bail” just in time.

Robert and Casper had a wild night when they got up close with an Australian croc. Unscathed from their thrilling encounter, Robert shared his experience on Instagram in hopes of inspiring viewers to watch the finale of ‘Crikey It’s The Irwins’, which includes one of his most nerve-wracking feeds yet. Tune into 8 pm USA time for this unforgettable episode.

Our crocs get the chance to feel like wild predators with us! We let them hurl those impressive strikes from the water’s edge, making use of all their natural hunting skills. It’s an opportunity they truly relish and always brings out their most exhilarating behavior.

After detailing the need for conservation and safety, he shared an experience involving a powerful croc named Casper. However, his post quickly received public backlash as people accused him of “using animals as entertainment” leaving visitors with more questions than answers about this animal encounter.

For Robert, there’s nothing more thrilling than working with the animals his father adored and in many cases, those exact same beloved creatures. He sees it as a privilege to carry on such an incredible legacy. When critics try to blow things out of proportion he calmly reminds himself that this is far from just another job; rather, these are living beings full of life who need care and attention.

Despite the massive success of 18-year-old Robert on TikTok with millions of fans and 19 million likes, not all comments regarding his videos have been positive. @sa99ymaggie recently posted a comedic video that pokes fun at some users’ tendency to mention Robert’s father in their responses an issue many can relate to. The clever clip has already racked up 4.6 million views as viewers comment in agreement with its humorous but pertinent message about respect and admiration for incredible creatures like Robert who deserve it without reference to others.
