His daughter, Bindi Irwin, addressed her Instagram post to her dad, sharing how she was spending the day in his honor: She went on a hike with her brother, Robert, to their dad’s favorite mountains and watched one of his documentaries with her fiance, Chandler Powell.

“Dad, Today is your birthday,” she wrote. “I had an extra strong cup of tea just how you liked it. I hugged Mum for you and told her how much we love her. Robert and I went on a hike through the mountains you cherished. I watched one of your documentaries with Chandler and shared stories about you. I walked through your office in the zoo and smiled at our old family photographs.”

The zookeeper and television personality died after a stringray struck him in the heart in 2006.

“Today and every day I miss you and love you beyond description,” Bindi finished the caption. “You’re always with me.”
