Little People Big Dreams: Steve Irwin



In this book from the highly acclaimed and bestselling series, Little People, BIG DREAMS, you'll delve into the remarkable life of Steve Irwin, a passionate animal lover and dedicated wildlife conservationist.

As a child, little Steve had an immense fondness for animals, spending his formative years surrounded by Australia's diverse wildlife. His parents established a wildlife refuge, where Steve and his sisters actively cared for injured animals. At the tender age of nine, Steve embarked on his first crocodile capture mission, aiming to relocate the reptile to a national park for a safer, happier life. This experience ignited his love for protecting crocodiles, eventually earning him the nickname 'the crocodile hunter' as an adult. Steve shared his wildlife enthusiasm and conservation zeal through television programs, catapulting him to international fame. Leveraging his celebrity status, he became a passionate advocate for conservation. Together with his wife, Terri, he established nature reserves, expanded their wildlife refuge, initiated a charitable organization, and instilled a profound love for wildlife in their two children.

Steve Irwin emerged as one of Australia's and the world's most celebrated conservationists. Today, his family continues his extraordinary work through Australia Zoo and Wildlife Warriors, the conservation charity they co-founded in 2002. Steve's enduring legacy continues to inspire young animal enthusiasts and environmental advocates worldwide, motivating a new generation to safeguard the natural world and its inhabitants.
