Just over six years to the day his son Steve Irwin passed away after a deadly encounter with a stingray, Bob Irwin unveiled a new Wildlife Conservation Foundation at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane, Australia.

Helping to cut the ribbon was none other than former Gun N’ Roses rocker Slash, who met Bob Irwin at a 2010 Soundwave music festival in Australia and instantly wanted to get involved.

“He brought some animals down to Soundwave so we got to actually meet, so I was really starstruck,” the 47-year-old guitarist told reporters. “Ever since I can remember from childhood I’ve liked snakes and reptiles and animals in general. But snakes in particular.”

Irwin reciprocated, commenting about Slash, “The best thing about this guy is he’s right into conservation and I love him.”

The new Bob Irwin Wildlife Conservation Foundation, in addition to educating children about wildlife and conservation, will also help further Mr. Irwin’s efforts through political lobbying and community awareness.
