Bindi Irwin Is The Jungle Girl

Bindi Irwin, the 8-year-old daughter of late Australian “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, is stepping into her late dad’s footsteps.

Irwin will star in the 26-part “Bindi, the Jungle Girl” series on Discovery Kids network later this year reports Reuters.

She will also help market her country to the world, becoming a new face for Australian tourism but will not replace bikini model Lara Bingle as Australia’s official face in overseas television advertising

Bindi’s U.S. talkshow tour this week coincides with the airing of the “Ocean’s Deadliest” documentary her exuberant, khaki-clad naturalist father was working on when he died.
