The DWTS contestant posted a poignant memorial to her late father, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, on the ninth anniversary of his death over the weekend.
Thinking about home today. Father's Day is today in Australia and everyone is celebrating at Australia Zoo It's such a special time of year, I hope everyone who comes to the zoo today is able to enjoy it with our gorgeous animals. No matter where I am in the world, this day means such a lot to me. My heart forever lives @AustraliaZoo - just like Dad's always did.
Bindi was just 8 years old when her father died after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray barb, and won hearts the world over with her sweet, brave speech at his memorial service at the Australia Zoo just two short weeks later. She has been a vocal animal activist ever since, pledging to continue her father's work at the zoo he loved, and worldwide.
Paired up with pro Derek Hough, who raved about what a special partner he has this season, Bindi makes her DWTS debut on ABC Sept. 14.
