As Australia continues to be devastated by the brushfires that have destroyed over 15 million acres of the country, killing billions of animals, Bindi Irwin and her family are doing what they can to help. But in this trying time, the 21-year-old wishes that her dad, Steve Irwin, was here with them to help.

In a post on Instagram, Bindi shared a photo of her beloved father, the Australian zookeeper and televisions personality, holding a baby kangaroo with a heartfelt message.

“Dad spent his life working so hard to protect wildlife and wild places, especially in Australia,” Bindi wrote. “I wish he was here right now to give advice and strength during this time of devastation with the bushfires. I know that his spirit lives on through our conservation work and I hope together we can make him proud.”

Since the beginning of the fires, Bindi, her brother Robert and mom Teri have rescued over 90,000 animals injured in the recent devastating wildfires at the Wildlife Hospital. Dad Steve, also known as The Crocodile Hunter, died in 2006 after being stung by a stingray. His family continues his conservation work in his memory.

“With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much,” Bindi said in an Instagram post. “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.”

“We’re doing our best to treat every animal we can – but unfortunately millions of other creatures are not as lucky as this little guy,” Robert said in a post alongside a photo with one of the saved animals. “Thank you to all of the firefighters on the frontline – if you want to help, please support local fire crews .
