Wildlife Warrior Bindi Irwin Plants Tree in Singapore's Gardens By The Bay In Memory of Dad Steve
Steve Irwin's daughter Bindi is incredible. For a 14-year-old, she knows exactly what she wants to do in life, guided by passion and wisdom beyond her years.
Bindi resolutely believes in lending a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves, caring for the environment and animals, and changing the world. Kid empowerment, baby!
She came to Singapore to plant a Queensland Bottle Tree at the Gardens by the Bay, and dedicated it to her late father. "I hope that the tree will be a reminder to everyone that my dad was one man who changed the world. If one man can make a difference, YOU can make a difference."
Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors, which is a charity established by the Irwins to involve people in supporting the protection of injured, threatened or endangered wildlife. Mr Philip Green OAM, the Australian High Commissioner to Singapore also attended the event.
Yes, we must have the tree hugger shot!
The tree-planting event also commerates her role in the Discovery Kids programme "Steve Irwin's Wildlife Warriors", which features the family's efforts in continuing Steve Irwin's legacy of wildlife conservation and welfare. Her new show premiered July 10 and airs Wednesdays at 8pm with repeats on weekends 9.30pm.
Bindi may also be inviting Singapore kids to follow in her footsteps and be involved in protecting wildlife and the environment. There are plans for a co-branded initiative called Discovery Kids and Wildlife Warriors. Stay tuned for updates on the website.
I was able to ask Bindi a couple of questions on behalf of my nieces Claire and Chloe in Sydney who are her biggest fans. Here's what she said:
Catch Bindi Irwin in two shows on Discovery Kids Asia (Starhub Ch 308 and Singtel Mio Ch 458):
Bindi's Bootcamp: weekdays 10.30am, 4.30pm and 10.30pm
Wildlife Warriors: weekdays 8.00pm with encores weekends at 9:30pm
Meanwhile, I have four Discovery Kids tents to give away in a random draw!
Plus they are autographed by Terri, Bindi and Robert!
