Australian television artist, author, nature photographer, and wildlife enthusiast Robert Irwin is a young and rising talent. He is carrying on the legacy of his father, Australia Zoo director Steve Irwin. At the age of two, Robert’s father was killed by a sting ray. This did not stop him from pursuing his father’s career as an environmentalist, though. When he was five years old, he made a cameo appearance in “Free Willy: Escape from Pirate’s Cove” and later starred alongside his mother and sister in the television series “Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors.” He publicly fed his first saltwater crocodile on his tenth birthday. He was chosen to co-host the Discovery Kids Channel television program “Wild But True” and made a cameo appearance in the British nature program “Ten Deadliest Snakes.” Robert launched his channel on Australia Zoo and started photographing wildlife. His well-known book series, “Robert Irwin: Dinosaur Hunter,” was co-created by him, and he did all the pictures himself. He has traveled the globe in pursuit of animal photographs that have moved people. To inspire the next generation of Australians to get active in wildlife protection, he formalized a collaboration between Scouts Australia and Australia Zoo.

Early Childhood & Life

Steve and Terri Irwin welcomed Robert Irwin into the world on December 1, 2003, in Buderim, Queensland, Australia. He is of Irish and English ancestry. His father was a well-known television personality and environmentalist from Australia who passed away from wounds and blood loss during a stingray assault. He was two years old at the time. Even though he has very few memories of his father, he has been inspired by him to pursue animal conservation as a hobby rather than a career.

When feeding saltwater crocodiles at a public performance, his father once stirred up controversy while holding Robert, a baby of one month, in his arms. Following the event, a regulation prohibiting kids from accessing crocodile enclosures during similar displays was passed.

Robert and his older sister Bindi were raised at the Australia Zoo in Queensland, which his grandfather Bob Irwin created. Both he and his sister received their education at home because of the area’s isolation. His father had a big impact on him, and he was exposed to nature and animals during his formative years at the Australia Zoo.
