He had great passion for wildlife conservation. I myself had developed concerns for wildlife thanks to this guy. It's really saddening to see someone pass away after he has contributed even in a little way to your life. He's one of my greatest idols, he's one of the guys I wanted to meet personally due to his great passion for nature. Rest in Peace Steve, we will never forget you and your great passion for the wild.
I was flipping through the channels and as I was passing CNN I saw the headline. I'm shocked. The world has lost an amazing man. I always loved watching his show, and admire his dedication to the animals. What a sad day for the animal world. But I can just imagine the welcome he received at the Rainbow Bridge. Rest in Peace Steve; may your legacy live on.
What a horrible thing to happen! That man had more love for animals in his little finger then most people have in thier whole bodies! My thoughts go out to Terri, Bindi and Bob!
RIP Steve, the animal kingdom took a huge hit today.
I was soo sad to hear about his death today. I heard it on the radio this morning and then again on the news today. I can't imagine the loss his family and friends are feeling right now- that's truely devistating. He geniunely loved his family and those animals he worked with. He made such a difference in the lives of soo many animals- and he did a wonderful job of educating everyone around the world- before i started watching his show, i couldn't have even told someone the difference between a crocidile or an alligator. I have learned soo much from his show. I truely hope his leagacy lives on through the wonderful work he did and his sweet famliy. He will truely be missed by all!
Does anyone know if his family or show has a website with an email address??? Maybe we could all email them and let them know what an impact he had in all of our lives and what a wonderful educator we think he was. Maybe that would help his family a bit by showing some support for them during their time of loss?? Does anyone know if there is a website we could all post on or an email address???? I think it would help them to know that people all over the world care for them and the work that mattered soo much to him.
I loved him, I really did. It's so heartbreaking to hear of someone so full of life and enthusiasm passing. It's a sad day for those of us, still left behind, but it's probably a joyous day for all of the animal's at the Bridge.
R I P Steve Irwin, you were an inspiration to us. I also pray for his wife, Terri, and his two adorable children Bindy and Bobby. What a great loss for us all.
I'm in shock right now, it's unbelievable. Hopefully, everything that he's taught us about conservation will continue, it's such a great loss to the world. His family, and the animals at the zoo are in my thoughts. Rest in peace, Croc Hunter.
I got onto his site. And if you click on where it talks about his sudden death they have a spot to send condolences to his family. I am in shock right now. He was such a wonderful man and he did so much for animals. He even talked about how irresponsible some people are to just abandon pets in the wild. He will be sorely missed and his family will need all the of our prayers. And atleast his children will know their dad through his shows and see how much he truly loved them and animals. This is so awful.
I read this online late last night just before I went to bed. I'm so sorry as he was a wonderfull man and taught the world so very much about animal conservation. I feel so very sorry for his family. And the people of Australia.
