Bindi Irwin is only 14 years old and is already an international award-winning celebrity.
Born to enthusiastic wildlife conservationists Steve and Terri Irwin – a passion Irwin has inherited – she first appeared on television as a small child and, by the age of nine, had appeared on numerous American talk shows, including “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Oprah” and “Larry King Live.”
In 2007, Irwin launched her clothing line, Bindi Wear International, and that same year she was awarded two Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, Fave Aussie and Biggest Greenie. Also in 2007, Irwin launched her very own TV show, “Bindi: The Jungle Girl,” which won an Emmy® in 2008 and was nominated for an Emmy® again in 2009.
Irwin loves to sing and dance, particularly about wildlife and regularly performs songs from her popular and award winning DVDs at Australia Zoo. Irwin has also performed at special events such as “G'Day USA” at the Music Centre in LA and the New York City Centre in 2007.
In 2008, Irwin won a Logie for “Most popular new female talent” and in 2009 she was nominated for an ARIA (Australian Record Industry Award). Both Irwin and her younger brother Robert were awarded the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award for Biggest Greenies in 2009. They accepted this award together and dedicated it to their father Steve, and the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.
Irwin has also co-created a range of books called “Bindi Wildlife Adventures” which have been launched in Australia, New Zealand in 2010 and the US in 2011.
Released early 2010, Irwin played the lead-role in her first full-length feature film, “Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove.”
