Robert Irwin first demonstrated a propensity for photography at the age of six, back then wielding just a tiny point-and-shoot camera. But since entering his photography into various photo competitions, he’s become more professional and more determined. Here, he speaks to Australian Geographic about his passion for photography, and how he intends to communicate important lessons in conservation — those first pioneered by his parents, Steve and Terri.
The network Animal Planet which originally aired Steve’s renowned show, The Crocodile Hunter, has announced that Terri, Bindi and Robert will be making a return.
Bob Irwin has shared a letter from a 32-year-old Steve that remained unopened until after the crocodile hunter’s tragic death in 2006, aged 44.
On a remote nature reserve at the northern tip of Australia, Steve Irwin’s memory continues to inspire efforts to understand and conserve his beloved reptiles.
