"Crocodile Hunter" dies

The Crocodile Hunter battling a rattlesnake in Santa Monica, California.Australian wildlife dardevil Steve Irwin holds a rattle snake during Nickelodeon's 15th annual Kids' Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California in this April 20, 2002 file photo. Irwin, the quirky Australian naturalist who won worldwide acclaim as TV's khaki-clad 'Crocodile Hunter', was killed by a stingray barb through the heart while filming a new television documentary on the Great Barrier Reef in North Queensland, Australia, on Monday.

Ok this one is one of those posts that have nothing to do with Costa Rica but for personal reasons I wanted to share this with you. Although I was never a big fan of Steve Irwin and didn't completely agree with his methods I always appreciated the fact that he knew how to instill in kids from all over the world the love for our planet's animals. The fact that he knew how to take to his message of wildlife conservation and environment protection to the younger generations is probably his biggest and most important legacy. Thanks and RIP.

Steve Irwin (1962-2006)
