Steve Irwin was an expert on animals and spent much of his career working to bring attention to endangered species and aid conservation. Every day, we are losing some species. Because of human behavior, many species are extinct. Steve was the voice for these voiceless creatures. And his amazing videos with different animals drew attention to their plight and changed our perception towards wild species.
Colleen Paige, the Pet Lifestyle Expert, and author founded US National Wildlife Day in Irwin's honor. Since 2006 September 4th is remembered as a US National Wildlife Day.
If we don’t start taking care of wildlife now, we’re going to lose them. Once an animal has gone extinct, they’re lost forever to future generations, it’s our responsibility not to let that happen.
