Crikey! It’s Steve Irwin Day

Steve Irwin was a modern day Noah. The man was as mad as a cut snake but he was also a conservationist who cared about animals and wanted to change the way humans treat the natural world. I remember the day he died so clearly. Phillipe Cousteau Junior, the grandson of Jacques Cousteau said of Steve Irwin,

“I think why Steve was so excited about it that we were looking at these animals that people think of as, you know, dangerous and deadly monsters, and they’re not. They all have an important place in the environment and in the world. And that was what his whole message was about.”

Thanks Steve, you are gone but not forgotten. Your work and your legacy live on.

    I remember the day he died too. We lived in Cairns and while shopping the shop assistant approached us to say he’d died and we though he was puling our leg. To be honest, I used to think Steve was a bit annoying, but he was dedicated to the environment and to sharing his love of it, and is deeply missed.
