Crocodile (Hunter) Tears
I want to pay tribute to the late wildlife conservationist and damn-fine human being, the ultimate Wildlife Warrior, Steve Irwin.
His commitment to educating us all about exotic animals and dedicating his life to helping them survive is an example of what it means to be a productive member of society. His purpose on Earth was larger than his own existence.
In honor of his work, you can make a donation to his wildlife preservation organiztion, Wildlife Warriors Worldwide. The money is used to run the non-profit and also to help maintain Australia Zoo, the wildlife park started by Irwin's parents and continued by Steve and his wife. In an interview, Steve said he hoped to pass the torch of wildlife preservation to his children, Bindy (8) and Bob (2), one day.
