Gone but not forgotten.

On what would have been his 55th birthday on Wednesday, Steve Irwin's daughter, Bindi, remembered him in a heartfelt Instagram post. The 18-year-old conservationist shared a flashback photo of the Crocodile Hunter star smiling with an exotic bird. "Always in our hearts," Bindi captioned the image.

Earlier this month, the former Dancing With the Stars champ also paid tribute to the love her father and mother Terri shared. "Soulmates -- in this life and every other," Bindi -- who's been dating Chandler Powell for several years -- captioned a sweet photo of her parents. "True love lasts always."

Steve and Terri were married for 14 years when Steve died after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb in September 2006. While it's been over 10 years since his death, Terri told ET in an October 2015 interview that she has no interest in dating again because she's already had her "happily ever after."

"I still feel immense love and loyalty to Steve," she explained. "And I've got great kids, I've got a very full life, and while I'm lonely for Steve, I'm not a lonely person."
