Summary
Steve Irwin, an Australian wildlife conservationist, brought adventure and the wilderness to television with his wildly popular TV show, The Crocodile Hunter. Known for his hands-on approach in dealing with all kinds of wild animals--the dangerous to the poisonous included--Irwin was tragically killed after a stingray barb pierced his chest while taping a show segment in 2006. His legacy, however, continues through the work of his family, including his daughter, Bindi Sue. Already making a name for herself as ""the Jungle Girl"" in television, film, and books, Bindi has taken over where her father left off. In Steve and Bindi Irwin, read about the lives and passions of both the Crocodile Hunter and the Jungle Girl.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Conservation Heroes series is designed to inspire young people to take up the environmental causes of its subjects. Breguet's entry on Steve and Bindi Irwin is a study of the importance of wildlife-conservation efforts as well as the power of strong familial ties. The narrative includes a chapter on the unexpected death of Steve Irwin and the family's attempts to carry on his conservation efforts. Bindi, the oldest Irwin child, has picked up her father's lifework, appearing in movies and television shows since his death in an attempt to convey the importance of animal preservation in both Australia and abroad. Illustrated with colorful photographs throughout, the book also includes a concise list of further resources and a Web-based bibliography offering ideas for how young readers can become involved. This is a solid volume for research and for inspiring conservation efforts, but it is also a touching story about personal perseverance in the face of tragedy.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2010 Booklist"
