“Grateful for every smile, every laugh, every moment we share,” she wrote.

“[Mom] has managed to raise two young children, looking after Australia Zoo and keeping it running, ensuring dad’s legacy continues and has kept up with all of our conservation work on a global scale,” she told the outlet . “I’m speechless. I don’t know how she did it all. She’s such a strong superwoman.”
She said that her mother was basically a “superwoman.”
