People No Comments

The National Parks Board (NParks) have an orchid in the Singapore National Orchird Garden named after Bindi Irwin. The Dendrobium Bindi Irwin was named after her to recognise her contributions toward promoting wildlife conservation. Bindi is the daughter of late wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin who died in a stingray accident seven years ago in Australia.

She is the youngest celebrity so far to have an orchid under her name. Miss Irwin along with her mother and younger brother met some students from Bedok Green Primary, Queenstown Primary and Rosyth School where she shared her experiences with them.
