Animal Planet announces Irwin Month

–  Australia’s favourite Wildlife Warrior family are back in 2022 and taking over Animal Planet for the entire month of February. 

The month-long stunt will feature premieres of Crikey! It’s the Irwins (season 4) plus Crikey! It’s the Irwins: Extra Bites season 2 and season 3. 

Season four of the award-winning series Crikey! It’s The Irwins will premiere Saturday 5 February at 6:30pm AEDT on Animal Planet. In the six-part series, Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin, Bindi’s husband Chandler Powell, and the newest Irwin family member, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, continue Steve Irwin’s mission to bring people closer to animals, inspire them to become Wildlife Warriors, and work together to protect and preserve wildlife and wild places. Never has it been as important to spread their message of conservation to ensure an abundance of wildlife for generations to come. 

In the season premiere, Bindi and Chandler’s daughter Grace discovers her new world at Australia Zoo, while Robert and the team attempt the biggest Gator move in the zoo’s history; for the first time they will try to capture 10 alligators from Gator Lake, home to over 40 crocodilians. Meanwhile, Terri helps her Sumatran Elephants as they learn to use a purpose built, giant runway which will allow them to freely move around the zoo. And Bindi later encounters the joys and tragedies of another Koala breeding season. 

Other stories this season include Bindi checking in on one of the biggest babies at Australia Zoo, Tallbert the giraffe; Robert and Chandler taking a road trip adventure to pick up a giant male Komodo named Naga; Terri helping to care for an unprecedented influx of baby Echidnas; Chandler dealing with a koala crisis; Robert assisting in a complex turtle surgery; Bindi hand raising a baby possum and Terri overseeing the largest and most complex animal move in Australia Zoo’s history. Also, during the season, Grace receives a surprise honour!
