Australian Personality #1 - Steve Irwin
“Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and conservationist known as the ‘Crocodile Hunter’, was killed Monday by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef. He was 44.”
That’s it. The Crocodile Hunter in dead. And in a very unique and coherent way, if I can say so.
He is definitely one of the internationally most known Australian citizens and its death caused different feelings in people around here. Some think he just used an extreme stereotyped image to make money; others say he’s a truly environmental conservationist, who called a lot of attention to its cause.
