Crikey” Aussie Icons, Crocodiles & more..
When you think of Aussie Icons the list is very diverse, from Vegemite to Tim Tams, The Great Barrier Reef to Ularu and most popular Kangaroos to Crocodiles. Perched high at the top of the list of Aussie Icons is Steve Irwin. Steve Irwin was not only renown for his passion and love of Australian Animals and our Eco system but also educating & saving animals on the brink of extinction. Steve loved to clear the name of some of our Aussie Icons that had a bad wrap, for example his beloved Crocodiles and many others, some of which were our most endangered wildlife. He strived to make people worldwide want to learn more, become intrigued and to take their part in trying to help those who didn’t have a voice to do so themselves. From a young age Steve Irwin our Wildlife Warrior use to spend months on end in remote and very dangerous parts of Australia relocating naughty Crocodiles to save them from an inevitable fate at the hands of poachers or those they were menacing. Not only did his infectious personality and shear enthusiasm for all animals big and small attract admirers for himself but also for those animals he was passionate about, especially his beloved CROCS. Steve Irwin aka The Crocodile Hunter was an inspiration to many and because of his work and enthusiasm he has left behind a Legacy, bred from his extreme conservation efforts. Every year on November 15th people of all ages, from Toddlers to Pensioners, many a person wear their Khaki in support of The Crocodile Hunters Legacy STEVE IRWIN DAY, to not only raise funds for the Wildlife Warriors to continue on with Steve’s hard work in conservation but to use funds that support the protection of injured, threatened or endangered wildlife and just as important to raise awareness. If you’ve got a little Crikey fan who’d love to sink their Teeth into a Crocodile Rattle Teething Toy which was inspired by the late Steve Irwin check out Green Bubz. For every Crocodile Teething Toy Sold $1 will be donated to the Steve Irwin Day, Wildlife Warrior Fund to help and protect endangered and threatened wildlife. CROCS RULE!!
