    Australia has offered the family a state funeral for him. He was so important to the people there.



    RIP Steve

    I remember watching him all the time when I was younger.  It's so sad. May he rest in peace.

    Steve-o was a "regular bloke" who somehow managed to connect with people around the world. He was as full of energy, enthusiasm and life as anyone I know of. His passion for conservation and protection of wildlife was genuine and his dedication to his "mission" was sincere. The wildlife warrior from the outback became a great man in his own way. He became a close personal friend to most of his viewers and he provided entertainment, fascination and company for millions of children and adults in dozens of countries.

    Though he lived in Australia and journeyed around the world, he seemed to have made a special connection to TV audiences in the U.S. Though he was already popular in Australia, it was the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet that brought him worldwide recognition. Some Australians may have found him to be a tad embarrassing as they may have believed that he reinforced negative attitudes abroad about uncouth Aussies, though the majority of Australians seemed to be proud of his accomplishments.

    Americans watched him without that cultural baggage. We could watch the show and take in his childlike fascination with dangerous creatures. We could revel in his absolute passion for wildlife. And we were able to share in his experiences, whether it was his thrilling encounters with crocodiles, king cobras or Komodo dragons, or his many joyous moments with his wife Terri, and later his daughter Bindi. (We didn't have a chance to get to know Bob as he is still too young to communicate with viewers.)

    Steve died while filming a sequence for his daughter Bindi's new show for the Discovery Kids network. Discovery has said that the decision about whether to continue with the show is up to Terri and Bindi. They would be more than willing to push ahead. Discovery would probably enjoy seeing at least a little of Steve-o through the sweet and fragile face of Bindi. Here's hoping that Terri and Bindi find the strength to continue on with the conservation and wildlife protection message that Steve promoted, and that Bob may get to know his father through the many Crocodile Hunter episodes and documentaries and from the words of his mother and sister.

    The world has suffered a great loss, especially the millions of children around the world who grew up with The Crocodile Hunter. He had enough energy for 20 men and hopefully his spirit will truly live on through the memories of those who knew him and those who watched his exploits on TV. Sad to see you go, mate. Say hello to all the creatures in heaven for us.

    It's such a sad thing that you had to go Steve.  You were great at what you did, and at least your last moments was doing something you loved to do.  RIP Steve and congrats on your show.  Also, say hi to my deceased relatives for me.  Thanks.

    PS- I want to become something along the lines of what you did as a career when I grow up.  You influenced me to explore the world and all the lovely creatures in the world.  RIP Steve.  We all loved you.
