Little Steve loved animals, and his childhood was spent amongst Australia’s wildlife. As a young boy, his parents started a wildlife refuge and Steve and his sisters helped care for many injured animals. When he was nine, Steve captured his first crocodile, in order to take it to a national park so it could have a safe, happy life. He fell in love with protecting crocodiles and as an adult became known as the crocodile hunter! Steve shared his love of wildlife and his passion for protecting it through television programmes, and soon rose to international fame. Steve used his celebrity status to educate the world on the importance of conservation. He and his wife, Terri, created nature reservations, grew their wildlife refuge, started a charity and raised their two children to love wildlife as much as they did.
Steve became one of the most celebrated conservationists in Australia and across the world. Today, Steve’s family continue his incredible work through Australia Zoo and Wildlife Warriors, the conservation charity founded by Steve and his wife Terri in 2002.
