I was just sitting here, thinking about Steve Irwin and said to myself, go to Yahoo answers and see how others feel. Thanks for posting this question. Steve Irwin made me think about animals in a whole new way. I have a greater respect for animals because of him. I used to watch crocodile hunters alot, but in the last couple of years, I moved on to other interests. I just feel very sad about him dying at such a young age. I'm 55 and I guess it makes me feel lucky I'm still alive. Steve Irwin had such a fun personality, I always had the feeling that he was a geniune person, and what you saw is what you got. I would laugh so hard watching him. A very cool person! I love you Steve! Have just as much fun in heaven!
Anyhow, I uploaded 2 videos to youtube, a tribute and Crocodile Hunter, most embarrassing moments. That one will make you laugh!!!
This is a really cool video of Steve Irwin, with some of his most embarrassing moments! Hope this cheers everyone up a bit! Crickey!
Steve Irwin, A Great Aussie Mate
Australia and America has lost a great mate. For the past few years Steve Irwin has been the Aussie Americans knew best. He was your mate. For those of us who were lucky enough to have worked with him promoting Australia, he was our mate. His extraordinary enthusiasm and passion for life, his unequalled devotion to the animal world, his big hearted love for his country and his efforts to get more Americans Down Under made us proud - of him, and of what he so magnificently represented.
We thank America for taking him to your hearts. By doing that you gave him the power to make his dream of a better understanding of the natural world a reality. You will miss him, and so will we.
Steve was a great Australian and a great man.
Donations in memory of Steve can be made at www.wildlifewarriors.org.au ....
Australia Zoo and Wildlife Warriors Worldwide are today in mourning for a beloved friend and respected leader. The global response to the loss of Steve Irwin and the public outpouring of empathy we have received has been overwhelming, and a significant comfort to those of us who knew him. This is not just a loss for us, but for a planet full of people who loved him so well, and for the world’s precious wildlife that he laid his life on the line to protect.
Steve was a true original; he brought energy and passion to everything he did. Whether it was performing groundbreaking crocodile research on board his vessel Croc One, filming wildlife documentaries or simply celebrating his children’s birthdays, Steve didn’t do anything by half. A hard-core Wildlife Warrior and dedicated family man, Steve did for conservation and education what no one had ever done before. He brought wildlife conservation right into people’s living rooms and created a whole new generation of Wildlife Warriors.
The exceptional life Steve led is a testament to his respect for all creatures great and small, and his passion for wildlife was matched only by his passion for family life.
We here at Australia Zoo offer our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the Irwin family for your condolences and kind words. Many people have expressed a desire to donate to Wildlife Warriors Worldwide in memory of Steve. All donations will be greatly appreciated and applied directly to saving animals in the wild. Steve’s legacy will live on in the continuation of his life’s work.
