Bindi Irwin Gets Her Own Show, Follows in Dad's Footsteps
This past Tuesday was World Environment Day, and Bindi Irwin, the daughter of Steve Irwin, and her mother Terri Irwin, along with a veritable smorgasbord of U.N. and Discovery Channel officials celebrated the launch of the new Discovery Kids Channel series, BINDI: THE JUNGLE GIRL at U.N. Headquarters in NYC to mark the occasion. The series is based on Bindi's passion for animals and conservation, and like her father it's that intense drive to protect the planet that makes it possible to bring fascinating creatures facing extinction around the globe into the hearts and minds of kids everywhere. The first episode is set to air tomorrow night, June 9 at 5PM (ET) on Discovery Kids Channel, and is titled simply "Not Many Left". Throughout the series she'll be helping kids around the world come to understand how and why every animal, both large and small, needs protection. And let's face it, if she's a chip off the old block in any way at all she's going to do a terrific job of it too So tune in and check it out with your kids tomorrow night, because it should be a lot of fun!
