There is no doubt that the late, great Steve Irwin aka "Crocodile Hunter" had influenced a generation of the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats.
Over the course of his life, Irwin became such an enthusiastic force towards conservation; and because of this, Google acknowledges Steve Irwin with the famous Google Doodle.
Announced via a blog entry penned by Dr. Terri Irwin, Steve's wife, the Doodle features a slideshow of Steve's legacy--some we're fortunate to have witnessed on his hit documentary series "The Crocodile Hunter".
"Our lives changed forever when Steve had an accident while filming in the Great Barrier Reef. Losing Steve was a real crossroads for us, but together we decided to continue his mission. Bindi, Robert and I have dedicated our lives to the wildlife conservation work that Steve began.
Today, Australia Zoo is still growing with more than 1,200 animals, and nearly 1,000 acres. We protect nearly half a million acres of habitat, and our non-profit organisation supports conservation projects around the world. We even have a Wildlife Hospital that has treated over 82,000 sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife, solely to return them back to the wild."
