“We’ve been referring to our daughter as our Baby Wildlife Warrior. I know in my heart that she will forge her own path to make our planet a better place through her connections with the animals that we protect here at Australia Zoo and the conservation work we do with animal species around the globe.”

“He would’ve been a good, good grandpa. Yeah, he really would’ve been,” Iriwn told Entertainment Tonight about missing her father, who died in 2006 after he was killed by a stingray.
