Today Is Steve Irwin’s Son’s 14th Birthday! He’s Already An Award Winning Photographer And His Photos Show Why

Australian zookeeper and conservationist Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray in 2006, but his wild soul lives on in his son Robert. Today, the boy is celebrating his 14th birthday, and it’s already clear that he’s following in his late father’s footsteps, helping the world to fall in love with nature.

“14 years ago we welcomed you into our lives,” his mom wrote on Twitter. “Your dad would be so proud of the brilliant young man you have become. I love you, Robert.” His big sister Bindi also had something to say: “You are the greatest brother and friend. I’m so lucky to be your sister. Thank you for always making me smile.”

Since a very young age, Robert has been fascinated with the natural world. Now, together with his family, he travels the planet and captures the beauty of the animal kingdom. The talented 14-year-old is sharing his wildlife photography on social media and people are loving his work just as much as his father’s. Robert is Steve’s only son but it’s clear that he’s a true chip off the old block and the perfect guy to continue what his dad has started.

I really still miss Steve a lot. What an incredible loss when he passed so early. Robert and his sister Bindi are such fine young people. I wish them all the best from the bottom of my heart. ♡

Ikr , sad when he passed. I used to watch his show with my mom when I was 10, it was one of my favorite evenings since I'd spend it with my mom. My mom would always say "look at the amazing animals the earth has" and " aww that man really loves animals "
