There has been strong sentiment in the U.S. and worldwide over the loss of the conservationist and TV star, Steve Irwin. There was simply something so likeable about the guy and his personality on air. We all know he risked a lot in bringing education–and danger–to the screen (for a somewhat morbid intro, take a look at his official Discovery Channel site…)
Fellow Australian, actor Russell Crowe described Irwin as the “ultimate wildlife warrior”. He added: “He was the Australian we all aspire to. He touched my heart.”
Our thoughts go out to his family. What a sad and apparently random accident. What are your thoughts on his passing?
