Yesterday, on World Environment Day, rising star Bindi Irwin planted the 1.5 millionth tree as part of the State Government’s Three Million Trees program. The goal of the program is to stop climate change and promote biodiversity. In honor of her late father, Bindi named the tree “Steve The Tree”. From the article,
“Mrs Irwin said Bindi and Bob were ‘expert tree planters’ and they were all excited to help the program.’We are seeing things in South Australia like drought and water levels dropping and the need for preservation and trees are directly linked with that,’ she said. ‘You don’t need a lot of time or money to do this kind of initiative.’
A new DVD commemorating the life of Steve Irwin titled Crikey, What An Adventure! will be released next month. The documentary features personal stories from Steve’s family and never-before-seen interviews and backstories on the famous Crocodile Hunter. More details here.
