STORIES
Animals Heroes

Stephen R. Irwin

by Akshay from Fremont

The hero who inspires me is Steve Irwin. My hero has saved animals and taught kids not to be scared when you see them. He has also taught kids about animals and what they eat and where they live.

On February 22, 1962, Steve was born and on September 4, 2006. He died from a fatal stingray accident. Steve was born in Essindon, Victoria, Australia and died in Batt Reef, Queensland, Australia.

Steve inspired me, because of all the animals he has saved. Also, all of the fish and crocodiles inspired me to start thinking of a career as a marine biologist. So that’s why Stephen Robert Irwin is my hero.
