“Dad, Today is your birthday,” Bindi captioned the post, alongside a photo of her dad holding a porcupine and wearing an Australia Zoo shirt. “I had an extra strong cup of tea just how you liked it. I hugged Mum for you and told her how much we love her. Robert and I went on a hike through the mountains you cherished. I watched one of your documentaries with Chandler and shared stories about you. I walked through your office in the zoo and smiled at our old family photographs.”

She continued: “Today and every day I miss you and love you beyond description. You’re always with me. ❤️”

Steve’s wife Terri Irwin also remembered his husband on Saturday, saying her late husband was her “best friend” via a Twitter post that included a series of photos of the late Crocodile Hunter.

“Today would’ve been Steve’s 58th birthday,” she tweeted. “While my heart aches missing him every day, I’m determined to celebrate what he loved the most. He was happiest spending time @AustraliaZoo w/ @BindiIrwin & @RobertIrwin. He was my best friend, best dad, & built the best Zoo. I love you.”

Rober Irwin, Steve’s son and Bindi’s brother, shared his own tribute via Instagram, writing, “Family Always ❤️.”

Bindi’s fiancé, Chandler Powell, also shared his own message to Bindi’s late father on Saturday.

“Thank you for inspiring me and the whole world to love all wildlife,” Powell wrote in an Instagram post. “You would be so proud of Bindi, Terri and Robert carrying on the amazing work you started. We will all make sure your message lives on for generations❤️🐊.”

Steve, who was working on the documentary series Ocean’s Deadliest, was attacked by a stingray off the coast of northern Australia and passed away on September 4, 2006. He was 44.
