The Irwin family is the gift that continues to keep on giving to the animal community.

As the devastating wildfires continue to tragically destroy homes and wildlife in Australia, Bindi Irwin and her family are working around the clock to help thousands of animals affected. 

Bindi took to social media to assure her followers that her family's zoo is not in harm's way, but they're doing everything they can to save help the animals in need. 

With so many devastating fires within Australia, my heart breaks for the people and wildlife who have lost so much. I wanted to let you know that we are SAFE. There are no fires near us @AustraliaZoo or our conservation properties. Our Wildlife Hospital is busier than ever though, having officially treated over 90,000 patients. My parents dedicated our Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital to my beautiful grandmother. We will continue to honour her by being Wildlife Warriors and saving as many lives as we can. ------

Many displaced animals have come through the doors of the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, which is owned by her mother Terri Irwin.

Blossom the possum was admitted to the #AustraliaZoo Wildlife Hospital after being caught in one of the bushfires burning in other parts of Queensland. We have such an incredible team who work day and night to protect gorgeous animals like Blossom. Devastatingly this beautiful girl didn’t make it even after working so hard to save her life. I want to thank you for your kind words and support. This is the heart-wrenching truth, every day is a battle to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Now more than ever we need to work together to make a difference and protect our Mother Earth. For more on how you can become a Wildlife Warrior visit www.wildlifewarriors.org ------
