Bindi Irwin entered the new year in a reflective mode. On New Year's Eve, the Australian Zoo operator took to Instagram to look back at 2020 and how it played out for her and her family.

Alongside a heartwarming photo of her joined by brother Robert and mother Terri, Bindi wrote that words failed her when it came to describing 2020. She explained that she decided to recap on the past year to prepare for the new one.

The television personality noted that she believes that the best way to look forward is to recollect all the events responsible for bringing one to the present moment, after which she told her story. Bindi recalled:

"For us, this year was filled with both tremendous joy and heartbreaking loss. Our Wildlife Hospital was the busiest it's ever been due to the Australian bushfires that raged across the country."

The conservationist continued, noting that she and her team worked hard to help those affected by the natural disaster and saved over 100,000 patients.

2020 was also when the Australia Zoo turned 50, but unfortunately, they had to shut their doors for the first time for 78 days due to the pandemic. The food bills for their animals increased to about $80,000 per week, and they struggled.

Bindi explained that the year was challenging for the organization, but a glimmer of hope arrived when Australia got the virus in check and opened up again. They were able to open their doors and expand their reach.

Aside from the success of the zoo, Bindi experienced significant joy in her personal life. She wrote about her marriage to longtime boyfriend, Chandler Powell, and spoke about their unborn daughter, writing:

"Now, we are patiently waiting for our gorgeous daughter to arrive. She's the light of our lives. I hope this next year brings some peace."

Days before the reflective post, Bindi appreciated her husband in a sweet share. She uploaded a lovely photo of them hugging their dog Piggy and gushed about her man in the accompanying caption.

She tagged the post a message of gratitude and recalled how she fell in love with Powell seven years ago. Bindi described him as a kind heart and spoke about how excited she is to see him become a father come 2021.

The couple celebrated their first Christmas as a married couple in December and shared photos from their intimate festivities. The lovebirds posed with their dog beside an outdoor tree, which they beautifully decorated.
