In honour of the Legendary Crocodile Hunter.,

The word hunter is ironic in this iconic personality's popular screen name. Steve Irwin, popularly known as The Crocodile Hunter was anything but that. He was a really passionate envinormentalist, u can deffinetely know that, watching his TV shows. I grew up watching this man. I love him so much coz I share some of his immense love for wildlife. He was as an icon and a legend as a tv personality as well as in wildlife conservation. I even thought of taking up animal conservation as my career after watching him. He passed away on the 4th of September 2006, while filming for a documentary for kids on marine life. He was hit by a sting ray in his chest which hit him straight in the heart and he couldnt make it to the hospital.

I remember one show of his where he was performing a burial for one of his crocodiles and he was crying like it was one of his family members. It really showed that he was really about loving and saving wildlife and just not for the TV show. He's a genuinely a nice man, very funny, very charming and full of enthu and a really proud n happy father. I remember those episodes with his daughter Bindi. It's really really really sad.

It's like I lost a friend coz i used to watch him everyday on TV, laughed with him, shared sad moments with him. I could barely hold back my tears when I heard the news. I can only imagine wat his family and colleagues are going thru. He died doing wat he loved, but it still didnt had to happen. It's very sad that I just had the idea of mailing him about wat a big fan I was of him. Guess I can't do that now.,

He's one of the very few ppl i'd like to have as a role model. May his soul rest in peace, he's surely going to heaven for all he did for wildlife and for the nice man that he is. He spoke for those who couldnt speak. My thoughts and prayers go out for his family. Goodbye Steve. I'll always remember you.
