As an avid reptile whisperer, passionate surfer and all round legend, Steve Irwin was one of the most influential conservation personalities in the world. With a deep understanding of animal behaviour, exceptional bush survival skills and a wired personality, this allowed him to travel the world to film and educate people about often misunderstood animals.

“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.” Steve Irwin.
