Like Father Like Son! Steve Irwin’s son has been named Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Robert Irwin from Australia is a worthy successor to the famous “Crocodile Hunter”, who died of a sting in 2006. Steve Irwin died in September 2006 when he received a fatal sting from a sea urchin while filming a TV show. He was known as the “Crocodile Hunter” and will be remembered as the man who brought the wilderness closer to the common people. He devoted his whole life to studying and helping animals, and he passed that love on to his children, son Robert and daughter Bindi. His son, Robert Irwin, followed in the footsteps of his father, Steve Irwin, who was known as one of nature’s greatest lovers and was nicknamed the “Crocodile Hunter”. Although his father died prematurely, Robert did not forget everything he had learned from his father, so now he is slowly but surely becoming his successor.

When it comes to family ties, people often know what kind of father such a son is. This is confirmed by Steve Irwin’s son, Robert Irwin. Robert successfully follows in his father’s footsteps and helps the world fall in love with nature. From an early age, Robert was fascinated by wildlife. Now, together with his family, he travels to virtually the entire planet and captures the beauty of wildlife through photographs. Robert shares his photos on his Instagram account and people are quite interested and follow his journey.


Since 2009, Robert has been active on television screens and over the years has become more and more successful and experienced in it. He has appeared in several documentaries, in a TV series with his mother, in the “Discovery” program for children. He has also been nominated for multiple awards. In 2015, Robert appeared as a guest on the series Wildlife: Australia’s Ten Most Notorious Snakes. There he played the host, who led presenter Nigel Marven through the Australian Zoo to find the red snake.

Among his great successes we can single out the competition for Australian geographical natural photography in 2016. At that time, Robert was second in the junior category of the competition. On February 16, 2017, he appeared on the entertainment television show The Tonight Show. On April 6, 2017, Robert Irwin was named a member and appointed Scout Ambassador to Australia. The aim of the partnership is to encourage young people in Australia to get involved in this project and get to know the wilderness. He has his own program on the Australian Zoo Channel.

Steve Irwin’s son repeated his famous photo with the same crocodile

Interesting is the photo in which Robert feeds the same crocodile in the same place as his father, and the comparison of the two photos simply melts the heart. It is about the crocodile Murray from the Australian Zoo. The teenager wants to become a successful wildlife photographer, and he is well on his way to achieving that. Robert regularly visits the Australian Zoo where he is in contact with some of the most dangerous animal species on the planet.
