‘I feel tremendously grateful to share our life and conservation work with you but I need some time to focus on the happiness that is my family (both human and animal). You can keep up with our adventures by following my family and Australia Zoo on social media.
‘Recently, I’ve had many people reaching out to share their own stories of working hard to protect their mental health. Thank you for sharing and speaking your truth.
‘To my friends who are dealing with depression, anxiety and other battles every day – I see you. These issues are very real and deserve to be discussed and addressed.

‘Surround yourself with the light of people who genuinely care about you and will support you during the good times and the hard times. Remember there are helplines available.
‘Mental health deserves more understanding and support instead of being dismissed or patronised. You are absolutely worthy of love and kindness.’
Her social media exit came after Bindi sensationally spoke out against her paternal grandfather Bob Irwin Snr in a scathing Facebook comment.

The posts come after Bindi sensationally spoke out about her strained relationship with her estranged grandfather Bob Irwin Snr in a scathing Facebook comment.
She claimed the 82-year-old founder of Australia Zoo had never said a kind word to her and had ‘ignored’ her since she was a child.
Bob, the father of the late Steve Irwin, is yet to comment on the matter.
