She's the daughter of the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. 

And on Monday, Bindi Irwin, 18,  added another feather in her cap after being honoured with the prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship from the Rotary Foundation in recognition of her work in wildlife conservation.

Queensland's Glasshouse Mountains Rotary Club nominated Bindi for the honour, through which the club will donate $1000 to Rotary in Bindi's name.

 'I will continue to dedicate my life to educating and encouraging others to make a difference in our world. My mission will forever be to create positive change.'

True to that mission, Bindi was seen at Australia Zoo, as late as last week, feeding a huge croc in the zoo's crocoseum.

She was promoting an upcoming crocodile show on Facebook and in the snap was seen tempting the creature to jump out of the water for a piece of meat.

The jaws of the hungry crocodile sprung open as it leaped out of the water to catch his food.

Bindi appeared just as comfortable around the massive reptile as Steve was when he would host the shows. 

Since Steve's passing in 2006, Bindi has increased her responsibilities at the zoo, performing and hosting shows, attending annual crocodile research trips and carrying on conservation efforts.

Steve Irwin passed away on September 4, 2006, after being repeatedly struck by a stingray barb while filming off Port Douglas in New South Wales.

Her mother, Terri, stayed close to her daughter as she pulled off the daredevil stunt in July, but this time she appeared to take on the task on her own. 

The post was published on Facebook to promote her upcoming shows during the Easter school holidays.

Happy couple: During the school holidays she will also be joined by American boyfriend Chandler Powell, who she had been dating since 2014

The US wakeboarder has taken an active role in being included in the Irwin family, from a month-long crocodile trip to learning the ins-and-out of Australia Zoo life.

While posting during the crocodile trip, he expressed his excitement to continue the work in his future: 'Already counting down until next year.'

And it is believed Bindi's mother Terri has noticed his commitments and given her blessing to the couple, with a tweet suggesting Steve would also be happy for his daughter.

Chandler, who hails from the US, has long been a fan of Steve's work and 'idolised' the late Crocodile Hunter.

'Chandler used to watch Steve Irwin's TV show all the time as a kid,' the professional wakeboarder's grandfather John DiCenzo told Woman's Day last year.

He first fell for Bindi after receiving a tour of Australia Zoo during a visit with his family in November 2013.

The pair stayed in touch and began dating the following year.
