8-year-old Bindi Irwin is set to carry on the animal loving legacy of her late father, “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, now that she’s landed her own TV show.
People magazine reports that “Bindi, The Jungle Girl” is currently filming for the Discovery Kids channel. 26 episodes of the wildlife documentary series are planned.
“I’m trying to get across the message that don’t be afraid of animals, they’re just put on this earth to help the environment and everything like that,” Bindi told ABC’s Australian Story, the first time she’d formally spoken to the media since her father’s sudden death last month.
Her father will also appear in some scenes throughout the series, as select parts were filmed before his death.
“Bindi, The Jungle Girl” is set to debut this January.
