Crocodile Hunter's daughter debuts new tv show

Filed under: Celeb Kids, Media, That's Entertainment

When Steve Irwin, better known as the Crocodile Hunter, died last year, his memorial service was carried live on national television. If you saw it, then you know that his daughter, Bindi Sue, is an exceptional child. Reading a tribute to her dad that she wrote herself, she vowed to continue his work helping endangered wildlife.

Before he died, Steve Irwin had been working with his daughter to create a television show for kids. That show, Bindi: The Jungle Girl, is now set to debut June 9 on the Discovery Kids Channel. The show is designed to introduce children to all kinds of wild animals and get them interested in wildlife conservation. As the Jungle Girl, 8 year old Bindi lives in a tree house and "hangs out with lots of wildlife." Her late father makes appearances on the show via footage that was filmed before his death.

I was never a big fan of the Crocodile Hunter. I like wildlife, I just don't like watching wildlife come close to killing people. It makes me tense and I generally watch television to relax. But that's just me; I am sure kids will love Bindi's new show. For those who think Bindi is too young to be in the spotlight, John Stainton, who was Steve's manager, says "I think they don't understand that this little girl is very much enjoying what she's doing. She is in control."
