At Australia Zoo, November gears up to celebrate the life and legacy of the original Wildlife Warrior and Crocodile Hunter - Steve Irwin.
Saturday the 9th kicked off this year's proceedings with the annual Steve Irwin Day Gala Dinner, in Brisbane, a fundraising event for Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors. Funds raised assist the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital in its efforts to provide treatment and care to thousands of sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife (check out the latest statistics from Australia's busiest wildlife hospital in the video below), continuing the conservation work Steve was so passionate about and to keep his dream alive.
Next up, on Friday the 15th November, is Steve Irwin Day itself, which represents the many things Steve was passionate about: FAMILY, WILDLIFE CONSERVATION and FUN! You don’t have to be Terri, Bindi or Robert Irwin or a member of the Zoo Crew to be a Wildlife Warrior. Anyone can make a difference and anyone can KHAKI IT! Khaki is more than a colour. It’s an attitude and a stand to do something positive in our world and a passion to make a difference. And when you make a difference – you KHAKI IT!
Ways to KHAKI IT:
- Wear khaki and make a donation to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors
- Celebrate at Australia Zoo on 15 November
- Renew, reuse and recycle
- Clean up your local beach
- Build a possum box or a frog pond in your backyard
- Lock up your dogs and cats at night
We KHAKI IT because:
- As wildlife warriors, we believe that every life is worth rescuing
- We believe that anyone can be a Wildlife Warrior
- We believe khaki is not just a colour – it's an attitude!
- We believe that if you save one – you can save the species
- We believe that even kids can make a difference
- We believe in living the motto each day – KHAKI IT!
There's more activities than you can shake a stick at Australia Zoo on the day, including a live Crocoseum performance from Xavier Rudd and appearances from Rove McManus, Australian actress Tasma Walton and William Zillman and Ashley Harrison from the Gold Coast Titans. Full details of which you can find on our Events Calendar.
If you can't make it to Australia Zoo to join us in our celebrations you'll be pleased to hear that we'll be streaming the action LIVE from the Crocoseum from 11am AEST. You can find out all of the details you need for how and when to tune in from the Steve Irwin Day LIVE! web page!
