Australia Zoo Robert Irwin 17th Birthday Interview

EXTENDED interview

Australia Zoo has hosted an exciting celebration for Robert Irwin’s 17th birthday!

Robert’s birthday is traditionally one of the biggest days on the Australia Zoo calendar, and this year, will celebrate Robert’s love for wildlife and wild places.

Highlight was the official unveiling of a spectacular new diprotodon sculpture. (Each year there’s a new sculpture.)

Along with the celebration day details and the unveiling of the new sculpture, Robert opens up about learning to drive, photography, life at the Zoo and the impact of Covid on the Zoo and continuing dad Steve’s legacy.

…. but let Robert and proud Mum Terri tell you in their own words.
