Stephen Robert Irwin (February 22,1962 - SEptember 4,2006), known simply as Steve Irwin and nicknamed "The Crocodile Hunter", was an iconic Australian television personality, wildlife expert, and conservationist. He achieved world-wide fame from the television program The Crocodile Hunter, an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary series co-hosted with his wife Terri Irwin. Together, they also co-owned and operated Australia Zoo, founded by his parents in Beerwah, Queensland. He died in 2006 after his chest was fatally pierced by a stingray barb whilst filming in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
I didn't really watch Discovery Channel and Animal Planets when i was small. And this guy actually got me into these two channels, with his famous tv program, The Crocodile Hunter. It's two years since he left us, but his contributions towards wildlife shouldn't be forgotten.
May you rest in peace, Mr Irwin. Not only the humans will miss you, so do the crocodiles and other animals!!!!
