When you lose a loved one, you come to these crossroads. You can take the path that leads you down the aisle of sadness, or you can say, 'I'm never going to let this person's memory die. I'm going to make sure everything they worked for continues.'
I love them very much. All animals big and small. You can name an ant for instance.
I make people step over the ant trail.
I know I can count on my mum and brother to be there for me through good and bad times.
When I was about 2 years old, I found a bee that had been stepped on on the foot path, and so I picked it up to rescue it, and it stung me on the hand. From that day forward, I've been terrified of bees.
Give me a 15-ft. crocodile any day over a bee.
I don't want to see crocs end up as boots, bags and belts. We're killing and consuming our wildlife icons.
I love hiking, paddle boarding and listening to the Veronicas.
It's human nature that if you get 20 positive comments and one negative one, you're going to focus on the negative. We all do that. It can be something that drags you down. It's easy to get bogged down with it, but I try to concentrate on the good things.
If you said 'Boo' to me, I wouldn't sleep for two weeks! I don't like scary movies.
Every time you lose an animal, it's like losing a brick from the house. Pretty soon the house just falls down, you know?
One day we were sitting in our little classroom in the middle of Australia Zoo, and Dad bursts in and says, 'OK, today we're going to go climb a mountain,' - the Glass House Mountains are about 20 minutes away - so we packed up all our math work and ran out the door and climbed Mount Tibrogargan.
I live in a town called Beerwah, right in the middle of Australia Zoo. It's not hustle and bustle and busy, so that's helpful. We travel all over the world, but I've always been able to come home and run around in the middle of the Australian outback.
Sometimes I get butterflies before I get up on stage.
In real life, I am trying to save the Steve Irwin wildlife preserve. It's in Australia, up on Cape York, and it's in danger of being strip-mined.
My favourite thing in the world is going out to get Chinese food, then coming home and renting a movie.
In the morning, my alarm clock is a chorus of lemurs yelling!
I want my children and my grandchildren to live in a world with clean air, pure drinking water, and an abundance of wildlife, so I've chosen to dedicate my life to wildlife conservation so I can make the world just a little bit better.
Favorite subject? I would have to say creative writing.
I am trying different styles, and while you can't climb a tree or jump on a crocodile in a dress, it is nice to get dressed up every now and then and kind of walk away from the khaki for a moment.
