Walk on the Wild Side: Zookeepers on Instagram

As Hollywood honors the late, great, fearless adventurer Steve Irwin with a spot in the 2018 class of individuals who have earned a star on the Walk of Fame, we’re examining the legacy of wildlife conservation he leaves behind.

Like father, like son—and daughter. Robert and Bindi Irwin fill their feeds with all manner of animals from the family’s base at The Australia Zoo in Queensland, where they and and other zookeepers continue on their father’s work.

Now, we’re looking at zoological gardens around the world, and the people dedicated to protecting and caring for the incredible creatures of all shapes and sizes who call them home. From adorable baby animals, to gentle giants, take a walk on the wild side with these keepers into the thrills of #zoolife.
