Steve Irwin was always interested in wildlife, even as a child. For his sixth birthday, he received his greatest wish - his very own 3.6m long scrub python for a pet.
I believe Steve was given more or less a "green burial" inside the zoo enclosure;
probably in a wooden coffin in a wooden roughbox, so he can return to the earth
over a period of time, and possibly his soul may benefit from the night cries of
the animals, and birds.
On 4 September 2006, Steve Irwin was filming an underwater documentary off the Great Barrier Reef, when he was fatally pierced in the heart by a stingray barb. He pulled out the barb himself. It has been said that, had he left it there, he would not have died.
Because he is awesome!
Steve Irwin (1962-2006) was an Australian wildlife expert, film and TV host.
Irwin was a passionate environmentalist, becoming known for the television program "The Crocodile Hunter", an unconventional wildlife documentary series which he hosted with his wife Terri Irwin. He also starred in Animal Planet documentaries, including The Croc Files, The Crocodile Hunter Diaries, and New Breed Vets. Irwin was killed in September 2006 when, while filming an underwater documentary off the Great Barrier Reef, he was fatally pierced in the heart by a stingray barb.
He was the father of two children: daughter Bindi (who was named after his favorite crocodile) and her middle name Sue (after Steve's dog), and son Robert (named after Steve's dad). 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. It's been said that if he hadn't pulled the stinger out of his heart he wouldn't have died. It was strange that he didn't die from a snake or crocodile but a sting ray. Steve Irwin had a amazing life and we should all cherish that. Steve Irwin was Australia's "Crocodile Hunter". His parents developed and ran the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park, and Steve grew up learning how to catch and care for crocodiles. He used his skills to assist the Queensland Government's East Coast Crocodile Management program, which involved catching snd relocating North Queensland crocodiles. In 1991, Irwin took over the running of the reptile park, which was later renamed "Australia Zoo".

Steve was killed on the 4th September 2006 at the age of 44 years. He was barbed by a stingray. He unfortunately pulled the stingray barb out which killed him.

Apart from this Irwin received many awards including shortly after his death as a memorial the rwandad government announced that they were naming there new baby Gorrilla after him! small but pretty cool because they aren't even Australian and they still a very respectful to him
Joy and Mandy.
Green, because it blended in with the crocs and wildlife.
Bindi Sue Irwin is the next Crocodile Hunter, just like her daddy!
Steve Irwin did not attend college. He had such enthusiastic interest for hands-on field work that much of his knowledge and experience regarding wildlife has been self-taught.
Steve Irwin (R.I.P.) actually didn't obtain a degree or even go to college. However, he was no dummy. He was very educated, perhaps more so than some graduates. He gained his vast knowledge starting from a very young age from his father Bob and his mother Lyn Irwin. When they finally gained the ability to start the reptile park and later, the Australia Zoo in Queensland, this too added tons of hours to his knowledge of all types of wildlife and not just reptiles and amphibians. He gained tons of field experience by studying animals in their natural environments from the time he could walk until his tragic death. Most people look down upon someone who doesn't have an education in a specific field, however in the case of Steve Irwin, he deserves the upmost respect because it just goes to show you can learn and do anything you want to and it also doesn't depend on what school you go to, or even didn't go to, but it matters how much knowledge you can obtain and one can literally change the world!
