Bindi's younger brother, Robert, and her mother, Terri, recently appeared on the Australian morning show, Sunrise, where a visibly emotional Robert talked about the impact of the fires on the animal population.

"We're seeing all kinds of different injuries," Robert told the outlet. "Obviously smoke inhalation and burns are happening frequently, but also animals are going into areas where they're not supposed to be to escape the horrific conditions."

The Irwin family has been doing everything in their power to help animals at their Australian Zoo Wildlife Hospital. It was recently announced that the family has helped to rescue 90,000 animals in total.

Robert posted about the news on his own Instagram account, writing, "Proud to be one of the many who are coming together to try to affect some positive change during this incredibly difficult time. We’re here to help where we can for wildlife and to treat the survivors. Again, my greatest thank you goes to Australia’s incredible firefighters. If there’s anyone who can band together and lend a hand in crisis, it’s Australians."
