Tribute to Steve Irwin (low isles)
As a geologist, I am very familiar with the australian landscape, its wonderful flora & fauna (including all the bitty & poisonous things that require respect) I can not in all honestly praise Steve Irwin, he was mostly totally reckless and irresponsible and choose to take senseless risks, most of his actions are appauling examples of how NOT to behave with wild animals, that should not be followed. Yet he did inspire many to stop and consider the environment. However he was just an entertainer, and a self promotional zoo owner. Streth I doubt he should be called an true environmentalist, he was more a wildlife sensationalist! It is however tragically sad that he was killed by a such docile relative of the shark, a sting ray.
Deep condolences to his wife & kids, crikey steve died way too young.
