Bindi Irwin isn’t the only member of the family carrying on her late father, Steve’s, legacy of wildlife entertainment and education—her younger brother Robert just nabbed a show of his own!
“The Crocodile Hunter”’s lookalike son will cohost his own show, called Wild But True, on Discovery Kids Asia later this year.

“The whole idea is for kids to be learning without realizing it,” the precocious 10-year-old explained.
“It’ll be action-packed—plenty of wild animals and snakes.”
Robert, or “Baby Bob” as his father called him, was only two years old when his father was tragically killed—but he continues to motivate him to this day.
“He is such an inspiration for me,” Bob said. “I really want to empower people to bring conservation into their own lives.”
And even without his famous father, he’s in good hands. His mother Terri is an experienced naturalist, and 16-year-old Bindi has become quite the advocate and educator in her own right.
She recently spoke out about planning the family’s annual crocodile research trip and working with SeaWorld as a youth ambassador as a way to honor her father’s legacy—and it’s clear she’s made an impact on her younger brother.
“I’ve got the best sister in the whole world,” he gushed. “I’ve learnt so much from her.”
