More news on Steve from Animal Planet


http://animal.discovery.com/fansites/crochunter/steve/statement.html

DCI CEO and President, Judith McHale said, "I don't think we will ever get over the loss of Steve Irwin, a human being of enormous heart, irrepressible enthusiasm and dedication to everything he touched."

Steve's loss has been felt around the world, evident by the hundreds of heartfelt condolences that have already flooded into Steve's fan site on AnimalPlanet.com.

To honor Steve and the enormous contribution he made to the world and to our company, DCI will rename the garden space in front of Discovery's world headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, the "Steve Irwin Memorial Sensory Garden."

DCI is looking at the creation of the Steve Irwin Crocodile Hunter Fund, which we'll affectionately call "The Crikey Fund" to honor Steve's passion and exuberance for conservation and the animal kingdom. This fund will allow people from across the globe to make contributions in Steve's honor to support wildlife protection, education and conservation. The fund in addition to contributions by DCI will also aid Steve's Australia Zoo in Breewah, Australia as well as educational support for Bindi and Bob Irwin.

Right now, our focus is on Terri and the children. We will keep you informed as plans unfold to pay tribute to our beloved Steve Irwin.

You know?? I'm just expecting to wake up tomorrow and see this day didn't happened and that he's ok... I can't help thinking that is so unfair someone who does so much for others and for wildlife had to die.

Hugs girl, and you have to get some rest ok, hugs!!!!

You know how hard it is to be killed by a sting ray?

Man, that was a one-in-a-million shot.

I have just been heartbroken by this! I have been watching all the news about him all day long. I just still cant believe its real! This man is so young and so full of energy! What an inspiration he has always been to those of us who have a passion for animals as he does. My heart does break for dear Terri and those two sweet children. I think it would be a wonderful thing to do, to contribute to keep his passion alive. I will look for further info concerning helping in this effort!

I am too. It's so wrong that he's gone. I feel for his family and close friends. Everyone loved him so much.
