The 22-year-old admitted that there was a time during the pandemic when she wasn’t sure the iconic Australia Zoo could survive after 78 days of closure.

The daughter of the late conservationist Steve Irwin also spoke about how many animals needed medical treatment and rehabilitation after the devastating Australian wildfires destroyed millions of acres.

« For us, this year was both tremendous joy and heartbreaking loss. Our wildlife hospital has been the busiest in the country due to the Australian bushfires, « wrote the pregnant star.

« We have worked hard to send support to the frontlines of destruction. Since we opened our Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, we’ve now had over 100. 000 patients treated. This year Australia Zoo celebrated its 50th birthday. Birthday and for the first time in our history we had to close our gates to guests for 78 days because of the pandemic, « thought Irwin.

Irwin announced that there were around 80. It costs $ 000 a week just to feed the animals, and with no tourists she asked if we would ever recover financially.

« Everything was turning around in Australia and we were able to reopen our doors to people who need a safe haven for gardens and wildlife, » she wrote. « Our nature conservation work grew stronger and supported species conservation around the world. « 

Irwin concluded, « I hope the next year brings some peace and we find a way to come together as a society. Please remember to be kind to each other and find happiness in even the smallest of things. Thank you for your great support and see you in 2021. « 

Irwin married Chandler Powell at the zoo in March and the couple are expecting their first child, a daughter, in March / April 2021.
