Not only is Robert a spitting image of his dad, but he’s also a wildlife enthusiast. He co-hosts his own TV show, Wild But True, a wildlife series that has already earned him a KIDS EMMY award nomination.

“I’m keen to do everything he did,” said Robert, who was only two years old when his father tragically died.

With the help of his mother, Terri, and sister, 18-year-old Bindi, Robert hopes to “carry on where [Steve] left off.”

“My dad was the original wildlife warrior,” he dished. “He was the most incredible wildlife conservationist and every single day we strive to continue in his legacy.”

On Sept. 4, 2016, the 10 year anniversary of Steve’s death, Bindi took to social media to share a touching tribute.
