Robert Irwin may only be 12 years old, but he’s ready to fill the void left by his late father, Steve Irwin.
The budding wildlife enthusiast has just been nominated for a kid’s Emmy Award for co-hosting wildlife series, Wild But True.
Speaking to The Today Show, he said:
'I'm keen to do everything he did.'
'My dad was the original Wildlife Warrior. He was the most incredible wildlife conservationist and every single day we [his family] strive to continue his legacy,' the teen said.
'We get to carry on where he left off’.
Robert was just two-years-old when his Steve tragically passed away after being struck in the heart by a stingray.
