With a heap of writing experience under his belt, "B Walkin" resides in Brisbane and has published his first book.
The man who encapsulated the Australian way of living will be remembered this November as the greatest wildlife warrior who ever lived - on Steve Irwin Day.

Known for his love for crocs and his catch cry "Crikey", Steve Irwin "the Crocodile Hunter" will be remembered for his conservation work, and the preservation of wildlife and wild places. And to celebrate Steve Irwin Day, Australia Zoo are inviting you to the party.

The day will kick off with a free sausage sizzle brekkie, and for those who dress up in khaki, you will receive a 10% discount on gate entry and a complementary gift. Why khaki, you might ask? Well, at Australia Zoo, "khaki is more than a colour - it's an attitude". It's what Steve Irwin wore proudly day in, day out. And you can make a difference like Steve Irwin did by wearing khaki in support of Steve Irwin Day; because when you make a difference you Khaki It. There are several other ways to Khaki It this Steve Irwin Day. One of the ways is to create your own Khaki Hero fundraising page, and raise much needed funds for Wildlife Warriors.

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Worldwide was established by Steve and Terri Irwin in 2002 as a way to get people involved in the protection of injured, threatened and endangered wildlife. The organisation strives to continue the legacy of Steve Irwin today, with its wildlife conservation projects in Sumatra, Cambodia, South Africa, and of course, Australia. So to donate to this great cause, please visit the website. Alternatively, if you would like to start your own Everyday Hero Page and start fundraising yourself, please see the website for ways you can get started. Joey Ambassadors are a special group of young people who have shown a commendable commitment to what Steve Irwin lived for and have taken steps to take conservation further; so if you would like to support them in this endeavour, please donate to the Joey Ambassadors via the website.

So what else is there to do at Australia Zoo on Steve Irwin Day? You can visit the Khaki It tent to find out how Australia Zoo and other organisations Khaki It on a regular basis, and there is a Khaki It Kids chill-out zone where kids can be entertained with live performances, cooking demonstrations, possum box making, face painting, colouring-in competitions and even a major prize draw. And no doubt you will be engaged with all the animals to see and touch on the day, and don't forget to check out the Animal Planet Crocoseum; Steve Irwin's pride and joy, as well as grabbing yourself some great Steve Irwin merchandise.

For a great day out, why not gather your family and friends and head out to Australia Zoo this Steve Irwin Day; in celebration of everything Steve Irwin: family, wildlife conservation and fun. There's stacks of things to see and touch at Australia Zoo where cros rule. For more information, please visit the website.
