As a followup to my last post on this, Animal Planet has a whole memorial site set up for Irwin here. They are also showing a ton of “Crocodile Hunter” shows. The one I reccomend is called “Steve’s Story” and it will be on Sunday from 2-3PM EST. It tells the story of how he became who he was and it was quite interesting.
I was told by someone reciently that they didn’t like Steve becasue he wrestled crocodiles for publicity. I can honestly say that nothing could be further from the truth. This guy was one of the worlds most passionate conservationists, especially when it came to crocodiles. The only times he encountered them was when he was saving them from being killed and moving them to his family farm where he took care of them. This guy was the real deal and he deserves your attention.
