I have seen some of his shows. And quite frankly, I've seen better.

He did alot more than do a couple of tv shows. I'll admit I found him to be completely insane bordering on stupid with some of his stunts on his tv shows.
But I still appreciate what he did. Being someone who is constantly hounded about my hobby I REALLY appreciate the love he had for animals, more specifically reptiles. And also what he did for them. Not many people do. Sure you get the ones that look after the cuddly chimpanzees and panda's but he had a love and respect for the most hated animals too.

I'd just like to ask this one thing: How many of you blinked an eyelid on October 10 for our own largest game reserves founder?

In my opinion we should be able to remember whoever we want to. Obviously he had to have done something special or at least noteworthy if a few people want to remember him (however small of insignificant it might seem) and those that don't wanna remember someone, Don't.
Each to his own.

Australia Zoo
Australian Wildlife Hospital
Wildlife Warriors (international)
Species and Habitat Conservation (Asia)
Crocodile Rescue and Research (International)
Community Education (International)
Emergency Wildlife Response (including Tsunami project)

Now would you like to go to our local esteemed Zoo and hear about how much Steve Irwin assisted there mabey?
You could do that for every major Zoo on the planet.
Lets talk conservation? International again.

He also assisted in the creation of the current import/export laws for the entire planet as well as conservation guidelines and assistance for places like the DRC.

You think all he was doing was making movies going around the planet?

So are you telling me that the man who originally made it possible for some of the most endangered species in the world to have a safe haven right here in our own country can just be ignored? In what way is it different other than a couple of years?

Not sure what that has to do with anything...

Oh, and by the way, he's been dead for 14 months already. You're 2 months late.

Aah well. Bloke was good and certainly entertaining. I have no issue with remembering him on this day (even if it is more than a year)

Personaly I like it when people leave animals alone... I think that the stuff he did on his shows was incredibly stupid, I wont say that it was poetic the way that he died but he was being stupid and the animal reacted and he died...

It should be a lesson to us all... but it wasn't.

You Have The Obligation to Inform One Honestly of the risk, And As a Person
You are committed to educate yourself to the total risk in any activity!
Once informed & totally aware of the risk,
every fool has the right to kill or injure themselves as they see fit!

Stealing someones signature, sure 1 or 2 of u will know where it comes from.

btw Sylar the swim he was doing was not supposed to be dangerous, it was a very unlikely 1 in a million chance, I think he was mabey the first or 2nd person to actually get killed by a stingray.

Thats not the point...

There was no reason for him to be swimming that close to the ray.. or on top of it for that matter. He was doing something stupid and got killed.

He dangled his kid in front of a croc FFS...

For me to debate this again is a long tedious boring repetitive excersize, no offence but I am not in the mood.

Suffice it to say that it was like him having his throat ripped out by an 8 week old puppy.
very ironic if you actually do some research (no not media "ohh scary animal" bullshit) on the animal in discussion.
