12 years ago this week Australia’s famous Wildlife Warrior, Steve Irwin, died after being pierced in the heart by a stingray barb. He was filming an underwater documentary at the time. “Crikey, mate.”
Steve was renowned for his passion and love of animals. After his death, his wife Terri and children Bindi and Bob carry on his work in conservation, animal protection and rescue. Australia Zoo, founded by his parents, is located 80 kilometres north of Brisbane in Queensland.
“My job, my mission, the reason I’ve been put onto this planet, is to save wildlife. And I thank you for comin’ with me. Yeah, let’s get ’em!”
I know this is a long video but it is broken into short segments. It reminded me of his passion and enthusiasm. He lived life to the fullest. I ended up watching the lot.
“Born a wildlife warrior, die a wildlife warrior.”
Steps for Peace
