Robert Irwin has praised his resilient mum Terri for keeping their family zoo afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

During an interview on Sunrise on Wednesday, the 17-year-old said he couldn’t be prouder of how his mother handled the Covid crisis.

‘I think for myself and for Bindi and Chandler and the entire Australia Zoo team, I think we all got through it stronger on the other side,’ he said.

‘And that was absolutely thanks to mum. She is the most incredible fearless leader who took us through this incredible difficult time,’ he continued.

‘We’ve come out so strong, everyone’s been so supportive and the only reason that I think that we’re still here and all of our conservation work can continue is because of mum… I think she’s pretty amazing, she’s a superwoman for sure.’

Australia Zoo’s financial struggles during the Covid-19 pandemic will be documented on the new season of the family’s reality show, Crikey! It’s the Irwins.

Meanwhile, Robert’s sister Bindi is counting down the weeks until she welcomes her first child with husband Chandler Powell.

Last week, the 22-year-old wildlife warrior shared a sweet tribute to Terri on Instagram.

She posted a photo of herself smiling alongside Terri, 56, as they sat by the fireplace with their dogs.

‘Always laughing with my beautiful mama. Her amazing sense of humour and kind heart make me smile every day,’ she wrote in the caption.

‘Thankful for moments like this,’ Bindi added.

Earlier this month, Bindi revealed she’d started wearing her husband’s Australia Zoo uniform because her bump no longer fits under her shirt.

The brunette, who is expecting a baby girl, shared a photo of herself showing off her button-up top, with Chandler’s name embroidered above the pocket.

‘Reason 1 million I’m thankful for my husband. Borrowing Chandler’s uniform because my khakis won’t button over my belly,’ she wrote. 

On November 11, the conservationist revealed she was 20 weeks along in her pregnancy, meaning she is due to give birth in late March or early April.

The young couple were married on March 25 in a makeshift ceremony at Australia Zoo, just before the Covid-19 lockdown took effect.
