Steve was married to Terri Raines Irwin, who was born in Oregon. --- Steve ran a Zoo called Australia Zoo. So after that he was called the Crocodile Hunter. In his childhood, Steve grew up watching his dad save animals and that's what Steve wanted to do. At the age of 7 he caught his first crocodile. Steve had his own show called The Crocodile Hunter. When he was making an episode about sea life a sting ray stung him in the heart and he pulled it out as soon as people pulled him out of the water, but it was too late.

Many people came to the Australia Zoo to show their support…, and many places were named after him in dedication. November 15 in Australia is "Steve Irwin Day".

The park was a family run business, until it was turned over to Irwin. He took over the running of the park, now called Australia Zoo (renaming it in 1992). Also that year, he appeared in a one-off reptile and wildlife special for television. In 1991, he met Terri Raines at the park, while performin…g a demonstration. The two married in June 1992, in Eugene, Oregon. The footage, shot by John Stainton, of their crocodile-trapping honeymoon became the first episode of The Crocodile Hunter. The series debuted on Australian TV screens in 1996, and by the following year had made its way onto North American television. The Crocodile Hunter became successful in the United States and also, after repackaging by Partridge Films for ITV, in the UK. In 1998 he continued, working with producer and director Mark Strickson, to present The Ten Deadliest Snakes in the World. By 1999, he had become very popular in the United States, making his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. By this time, the Crocodile Hunter series was now broadcast in over 137 countries, reaching 500 million people. His exuberant and enthusiastic presenting style, broad Australian accent, signature khaki shorts, and catchphrase "Crikey!" became known worldwide. Under Irwin's leadership, the operations grew to include the zoo, the television series, the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation (renamed Wildlife Warriors), and the International Crocodile Rescue. Improvements to the Australia Zoo include the Animal Planet Crocoseum, the rainforest aviary and Tiger Temple. Irwin mentioned that he was considering opening an Australia Zoo in Las Vegas, Nevada, and possibly at other sites around the world. ( Full Answer )

Because when they strike it can be that quick that if they're within range, you're dead, you're dead in your tracks. And his head weighs more than my body so it's WHACK! Crikey means gee whiz, wow! Every cent we earn from Crocodile Hunter goes straight back into conservation. Every single cent. . … Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate. I am optimistic globally. So many scientists are working frantically on the reparation of our planet. I believe our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole world is facing, and that's habitat destruction. . I believe sustainable use is the greatest propaganda in wildlife conservation at the moment. I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message. . I bled a lot. I got hit across the face. We couldn't film for seven days. I got hit, whacked, underwater, across the face. I finished the shot, got into the boat and blood started coming out. . I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I'm just fine with that. I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it. I sincerely believe that there's room for cutting down trees for forestry and grazing, so as we all get to eat. Everyone has to compromise. . I'm a proud Australian, a very, very proud Australian. . I've probably saved thousands of peoples' lives with my educational message on snake bites, how to get in around venomous anything. . My belief is that what comes across on the television is a capture of my enthusiasm and my passion for wildlife. My dad taught me from my youngest childhood memories through these connections with Aboriginal and tribal people that you must always protect people's sacred status, regardless of the pest. . My field is with apex predators, hence your crocodiles, your snakes, your spiders. . No matter where you go and what you do in America, you turn the tele on and you're confronted with violence. No, snakes are no problem. I'd go to any country, anywhere, any snakes, not a problem. Since I was a boy, from this house, I was out rescuing crocodiles and snakes. My mum and dad were very passionate about that and, I was lucky enough to go along.. Snakes are just very instinctive to me. I've been playing with snakes since before I could walk. It doesn't matter where or what it is, from the biggest to the most venomous. So fear helps me from making mistakes, but I make lot of mistakes. So now what happens is the cameras follow me around and capture exactly what I've been doing since I was a boy. Only now we have a team of, you know, like 73 of us, and it's gone beyond that. So, my tactic with conservation of apex predators is to get people excited and take them to where they live. Take the crocodile, for example, my favorite animal. There are 23 species. Seventeen of those species are rare or endangered. They're on the way out, no matter what anyone does or says, you know. . That might have a lot to do with it, but you know, I probably don't show fear, but I suffer from fear like everyone else. The first crocodile I ever caught was at nine years of age, and it was a rescue. The only animals I'm not comfortable with are parrots, but I'm learning as I go. I'm getting better and better at 'em. I really am. There's a lot of research behind the scenes that you don't get to see, but I have an instinct that my dad nurtured from when I was born. I was very lucky then. . We've evolved from sitting back on our tripods and shooting wildlife films like they have been shot historically, which doesn't work for us. When I talk to the camera, mate, it's not like I'm talking to the camera, I'm talking to you because I want to whip you around and plunk you right there with me. Where I live if someone gives you a hug it's from the heart. Yeah, for some reason parrots have to bite me. That's their job. I don't know why that is. They've nearly torn my nose off. I've had some really bad parrot bites. . Yeah, I think it's an absolute disaster that Australia, the government, allowed kangaroo culling. Yeah, I'm a thrill seeker, but crikey, education's the most important thing. You know, I'm Australian, and we have got the worst sense of humor. We are cruel to each other. You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it'll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it's not even funny. . ( Full Answer )

Steve Irwin, aka the Crocodile Hunter, died on 4 September 2006 after being impaled through the chest by a stingray spine while snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. Australia Zoo, the flora and fauna park founded by Steve, did have a resident giant Galapagos land tortoise w…ho was named Harriet. Harriet was believed to have been born around about 1830 and died on 23 June 2006. It has been reported that Harriet was first collected by Charles Darwin. There have been letters found, written by Charles Darwin in 1860, in which he refers to tortoises from a previous expedition in 1835, one of which would have been Harriet. She arrived in Australia with John Wickham (a friend of Charles Darwin's) in 1842 and lived at Newstead House in Brisbane, Queensland until she was donated to the Botanic Gardens in Brisbane in 1960. A worker at the Botanic Gardens named her Harry, mistakenly believing the tortoise to be male. "Harry" was moved on to Fleay's Fauna Sanctuary on the Gold Coast, Queensland, where she was determined to be female and her name was changed to Harriet. Harriet was moved to Australia Zoo at the Sunshine Coast, Queensland in 1987. She became one of Australia Zoo's iconic animals and celebrated her 175th birthday with much celebration and thousands of visitors and vip's in 2005. Birthday cards and gifts were sent to her from all over the world. Unfortunately Harriet became ill in 2006 and died from heart failure. ( Full Answer )
