“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” – Earl Nightingale
The Irwin family boarded Steve’s famous boat, “Croc One,” to release a sea turtle back into the wild on the second episode of the season.
While on board, Bindi, 20, reflected on what her late father might be thinking if he could see the three of them out on his old boat.

“I think that maybe Dad might be out there somewhere, smiling, going, ‘You beauty. You’re using the boat,’” she said.
“I hope he’d be proud of us and I hope he’d be happy to see all the wonderful turtle releases we’ve done.”
While preparing to release the sea turtle, Bindi explained that her family savors moments like this.
“This is the most important part of our lives,” Bindi said moments before the turtle’s release.
“Months of work has gone into protecting this beautiful little life, and to come to the moment to release Eurong back to the wild. This is what we live for.”
Bindi went on to affirm her family’s commitment to wildlife and one another.
“It’s such a special moment for us as a family,” Bindi said. “This is what we love. It’s what we do. It’s who we are.”
“And we will work to the best of our ability to be able to release every single animal back out into the wild.”
