Bindi Irwin salutes late dad Steve Irwin on his birthday

Bindi Irwin salutes late dad Steve Irwin on his birthday

Steve Irwin was working on a documentary series titled Ocean's Deadliest when he was stung by a stingray off the coast of northern Australia and died on September 4, 2006.

Wednesday would have been Steve Irwin's 55th birthday, and his daughter Bindi marked the occasion with a sweet throwback photo of the beloved "Crocodile Hunter".

Steve Irwin was the host of the internationally syndicated "Crocodile Hunter" documentary series.

Steve Irwin is never far from Bindi's thoughts, and as ABC News shares, the 18-year-old wildlife enthusiast makes a point of celebrating her late father's birthday each year with posts meant to honor his achievements and his love for nature.

While Irwin's presence and passion for sharing the wonders of wildlife are missed, he instilled the same devotion to the animal kingdom in his family, especially his children Bindi and Robert. She wrote in the caption, "Always in our hearts". She won season 21 of "Dancing with the Stars" in 2015.

"You'll be my hero for my entire existence".

At the time, she wrote on Instagram alongside a baby picture of herself with her parents: "Hello lovelies".

She was just 8 when Steve died in 2006. "Thank you", Bindi captioned a November Instagram post. Robert, you are more and more like Dad every day. I'm forever thankful to be your sister.

Packed with unique animals, Australia is a phenomenal place for any wildlife enthusiast to grow up.

Bindi frequently posts images with her father, who she calls her "superhero".

"It's so cool to see you like this", Fallon said.

Bindi is now in New York City with younger brother Robert, 13, boyfriend Chandler Powell and her mother Terri.
