I was shocked to hear of the death of Steve Irwin today.
Steve, known around the world as the "Crocodile Hunter" was killed by a stingray which pierced him in the heart.
Steve brought a new and often dangerous approach to how we see animals and has given so much to the conservation of animals across the world.
He is well known for his contravertial attitudes and recently was critisised for having his new born baby in his arms, whilst winding up a crocodile.
He will leave behind him a huge legacy.
My thoughts go out to his wife and 2 children.
Steve will be missed around the world.
