Crikey It's the Irwins!
The family of late Australian conservationist and "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin are following in his footsteps with a new television show dedicated to their wildlife conservation work. "Crikey! It's the Irwins" will follow Irwin's wife Terri and their two children, Bindi and Robert, looking after animals at their Australia Zoo in Queensland as well as heading out on various expeditions. Irwin, who was watched by audiences around the world in his popular television programs, died in 2006 after a stingray's serrated barb pierced his heart while filming off Australia's northern Great Barrier Reef. "We are continuing on in dad's footsteps and everything that we do today at Australia Zoo and with our Wildlife Warriors work is exactly what he started," Bindi Irwin said of the family's conservation organization in an interview for Reuters.
