Steve tragically died when a stingray barb pierced his chest on September 4, 2006, while filming near Batt Reef, Queensland, in his native Australia.

He was just 44-years-old at the time.

Terri famously took over Australia Zoo after being widowed with the couple’s two children.

Irwin and her children Bindi, 25, and Robert, 19, have worked hard in the years since Steve’s passing to keep his conservation legacy alive.
