Nicknamed “The Crocodile Hunter,” Steve Irwin was an Australian wildlife expert, television personality and conservationist estimated to have a net worth of $40 Million at time of Death. He was born Stephen Robert Irwin on February 22, 1962 in Essendon, Victoria, Australia, to animal naturalist parents.
In 1970, Steve and his parents moved to Queensland where he attended Landsborough State School and Caloundra State High School. His parents launched the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park, where he grew up around crocodiles and other reptiles. He was involved in the park, where he took part in daily animal feeding, as well as with care and maintenance activities.
Since then, Irwin established himself with the government of Queensland, working with the country’s Crocodile Relocation Program. This involves the transfer and relocation of reptiles in proper localities in the most absolute humane, non-tranquilizing manner. Such treatment of the reptiles is frequently implemented in his television show The Crocodile Hunter’s Croc Files (1999).
The television series, an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary, brought fame to Steve Irwin as well as his wife, Terri Baines Irwin. They joined hand in hand with every adventure and efforts in almost every episode.
On September 4, 2006, he died after he was stabbed in the chest by a stingray barb while filming the underwater documentary film Ocean’s Deadliest near the Great Barrier Reef. The ship MY Steve Irwin of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society was named in his honor.
