15-year-old Bindi Irwin decided to spend her special day at the zoo today! Apparently, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, ay mate? Bindi's father, Steve Irwin, also shared a fascination for wildlife — as he was once famously the epic Crocodile Hunter!
Bindi tweeted this earlier today:
What a beautiful 15th birthday I had. Thank you to everyone for the kind birthday wishes and support! I couldn't do it without you.

— Family Planning QLD (@fpq72) July 23, 2013
As the famous crocodile hunter's daughter grows older, she's starting to understand the world around her. Not only that, but, she wants to make a difference in it! According to CourierMail, the young teen made a switch of interests from singing and dancing to politics and debate. More specifically, she has taken a particular interest in matters of family planning and birth control. This is what she said in an exclusive interview, as reported by the source:
As I've gotten older I've started to want to tackle bigger issues facing the world today... Girls as young as me or even younger are having kids and that doesn't seen right to me. I think that's really sad and we certainly need to start putting our heads together and thinking of ways to solve this. So educating our kids, giving them that freedom of choice and available help.
I think there's lots of ways to look at it and family planning is so important and I feel bad for those who don't have access to it and it's certainly something that's close to my heart and something I think we need to start thinking about.
The young girls' got a bright head on her shoulders.
