About Terri Irwin
Terri Raines Irwin is an Australian-based naturalist and author who was born on July 20, 1964 in Eugene, Oregon with a Net Worth of around $66 Million. She spent her childhood caring for and riding horses. She was also influenced by her father who frequently brought home wildlife that had been injured on the road. As a young adult, her summers were spent exploring the wilderness.
In 1968, Irwin worked in the family business then started a rehabilitation facility called Cougar Country. It was intended to re-educate and release predatory mammals and later handled 300 animals each year. She also owned fifteen cats, several birds and a dog. In 1989, she joined an emergency veterinary hospital as a veterinary technician.
Terri met Steve Irwin during a holiday in Australia when she visited the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park. They were engaged after four months and they got married eights months after, on June 4, 1992 in Eugene, Oregon. Together, they immediately began their life in Australia with wildlife documentary filming, an amazing zoo, a stack of adventures and two incredible children.

They have filmed more than 300 episodes of The Crocodile Hunter, Croc Diaries, Croc Files, New Breed Vets and Ghosts of War and Bindi: The Jungle Girl. They also released a feature film The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course in 2002. These programs are viewed in 142 countries and viewed by 500 million audiences worldwide.
