Steve Irwin said, “My mission ... is to save wildlife.” He did.

Steve Irwin’s life was cut short when he was impaled through the chest by a stingray in 2006 near the Great Barrier Reef.

 

But his legacy remains immense.

 

He was a popular television personality, a zookeeper, science educator, and a conservationist.

 

He would have been 57 years old today, and a Google Doodle not only honors him, but also the work he dedicated his life to.

You forgot the  'Will Robinson' bit.

His legacy did not endure. Look what his bitch of a wife did to his father.

He was all about self promotion and money. Not the aussie type that I grew up with.

They were good nextdoor neighbours until they bought Whale One and parked it in front of their house. I had to navigate around it every time I wanted to head out for a sail.
