Today i'm gone talk about Steve Irwin.
His full name is Stephen Robert Irwin, nicknamed "the corcodile hunter".
He was born in 22 february 1962 in Essendon a suburb of Melbourne, in the state of Victoria, Australia.
In 1991 he met his wife Terri Raines an american naturalist from Eugene,Oregon.
He has two children Bindi sue Irwin(1998) and Robert Clarence Irwin(2003)
On 4 September 2006, the day of his death, Irwin was fatally pierced in the chest by a Stingray spine while Snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef, at Batt Reef, which is located at the coast of Port Douglas in north Queensland.
He created with his wife the TV show named the crocodile hunter, this show debuted on 1996 and it became famous in other countries very quickly.He participated in other documentaries of animal planet like Crocs files, the crocodile hunter diaries and new breed vets.
Irwin was also involved in several media campaigns. He enthusiastically joined with the Australian Quarantine and inspection service to promote Australia's strict quarantine/customs requirements.
Irwin was a promoter for Australian tourism in general and Queensland tourism in particular. In 2002, the Australia Zoo was voted Queensland's top tourist attraction.His popularity in the United States make Australia a tourist destination.
In 1997, while on a fishing trip on the coast of Queensland with his father, Irwin discovered a new species of turtle.The turtle was named Irwin's turtle in his honour.
In 2001, Irwin was awarded the Centenary Medal by the Australian government for his "service to global conservation and to Australian tourism".
I like him, because what he does is exactly the thing that i want to do later, but without being so risky like him, i like a lot reptiles.The idea of owning a zoo is so interesting and cool. If i could in the future i will try to go to the Australia Zoo, to finish my career there.
He is very carismatic and funny when he presented his shows but some time a little bit out of mind.
That's all for today
