Dear Fellow Wildlife Warrior,



In light of this terrible terrible tragedy, we, as the Australia Zoo family, would like to sincerely thank you for your condolences, prayers and well wishers. All of the Australia Zoo team are devastated at our personal loss and the world's loss of a wildlife warrior who dedicated his life conservation.



----------------------------------------------------



At 11am on Monday the 4th of September, 2006, Steve Irwin was fatally wounded by a stingray barb to his heart whilst filming a sequence on Batt Reef off Port Douglas for his daughters new TV series. Emergency services were called from Cairns Rescue Base and met Croc One, Steve's rescue vessel at Low Isle on the Great Barrier Reef. The Croc One crew preformed constant CPR during the thirty minute dash to Low Isle, but the medical staff pronounced Steve dead at approximately 12 noon.



His producer and closest friend, Jon Stainton said on Croc One today;

"The world has lost a great wildlife icon, a passionate conservationist and one the proudest Dads on the planet. He died doing
what he loves best and left this world in a happy and peaceful state of mind. Crocs Rule!"
