Father’s Day on Sunday marked the 10th anniversary of the death of the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.

Irwin was killed in 2006 after he was stabbed in the heart by a stingray barb on the Great Barrier Reef.

His daughter, Bindi Irwin, 18, paid tribute to her father on Sunday by sharing a photo of her father, along with the message: “You’ll be my hero for my entire existence. I love you more than words can describe.”
