As I was noodling around on my laptop, I discovered breaking news that the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin is dead. Apparently he was off the Great Barrier Reef near where I was in October when a stingray barb went through his chest killing him. The first thing that went through my mind was that it could have been me swimming out on the reef. I also wish we had the time to go visit his Australia Zoo when we were in Brisbane.
Steve always worked for conservation and helped people understand animals such as crocodiles that scare most people. I do feel deep down inside that this is the way he wanted to go.
Crocodilehunter.com is down due to heavy traffic, but I am sure it will come back up soon so you can learn more about the work they did.
