Penguin Random House Australia will publish Bindi Irwin's debut picture book in February 2025

Bindi Irwin has a message for animal-loving kids: You can help protect the planet and all who call it home!

Penguin Random House Australia (PRH) will publish world-renowned conservationist Bindi Irwin’s debut picture book titled You Are a Wildlife Warrior!: Saving Animals & The Planet on 4 February, 2025.

Beautifully illustrated by Ramona Kaulitzki, and written in a playful rhyming structure, the book encourages readers to walk on the wild side and uncover their inner conservationists. From the first page, step inside Australia Zoo to see what nature has to offer! There are rhinos, kangaroos, crocodiles, of course. Readers will embark on an incredible journey that takes them through the habitats of animals, and details all the ways we can protect them, accompanied by fun facts along the way! You Are a Wildlife Warrior! also features exclusive Irwin family photos and a direct message from Bindi to the reader.

As a family, the Irwins have dedicated their lives to  protecting all of earth’s creatures and their habitats. With mother Terri and brother Robert, Bindi has worked diligently to ensure Australian wildlife is preserved and understood. And, as a new mum, she is perfectly suited to welcome the next generation of readers curious about environmentalism and protecting wildlife.

Bindi says: 'I’m thrilled to share my passion for wildlife and conservation with soon-to-be Wildlife Warriors of all ages. It’s so important to love animals and remember that we can all work together to protect their homes and habitats. This generation of children holds the key to a brighter future for our planet, and I hope my book inspires them to appreciate the environment and strive to keep our world a safe and happy place for all creatures. Sharing my book with Grace, and now the world, is one of the biggest and most meaningful moments of my entire life.'

Bindi Irwin is a passionate wildlife conservationist who has inherited her parents’ love for wildlife and wild places. Born to Wildlife Warriors Steve and Terri Irwin, Bindi is a determined soul, destined to make a positive difference on the planet. She, her husband, Chandler, and their young daughter, Grace, live in Australia and dedicate their lives to helping animals and the environment. Find her on Instagram at @bindisueirwin and on X at @bindiirwin.

Ramona Kaulitzki is the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestseller Sister’s First, Badger’s Perfect Garden, and Wonderful You, among others. She seamlessly blends digital and analogue techniques in her illustrations, and her art is inspired by nature, animals, seasons, and stories of all kind. Ramona lives in Germany.
