R.I.P., Steve Irwin—Wildlife Warrior

His program was one of the highlights of my relationship with my sons. We watched it together; they have learned and continue to learn so much from him and others on Animal Planet about the amazing creatures all around us.

On Sunday, my boys were actually outside catching the biggest skink I have ever seen when I heard the news. Jess and I waited to tell the boys until later that night and they were devastated. They have lost one of their heroes.

His enthusiasm for conservation was awesome, and his impact on the planet is immeasurable. My thoughts and prayers go out to Terri, Bindi and Bob. I appreciate that they allowed me and my family to participate in their adventure. Here is a great link to some memorial photos.
