WWE Superstar Edge will do his part to KHAKI IT this Steve Irwin Day, as he joins Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin in officially opening the celebrations on Sunday 15 November.
"We all know there was only one Steve Irwin. I will do what I can to help communicate his message worldwide and help celebrate his special day," said WWE Superstar Edge.
Celebrating the life and legacy of the original Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin Day aims to raise awareness and funds to continue conservation projects around the world.
"I work and live primarily in the US but I'm still aware of Steve's message of conservation. I think that speaks volumes as to how important and relevant the message of conservation is globally.
"My message would be not to take our wildlife and wilderness for granted. You should enjoy it but also do what you can to preserve and protect it," said Edge.
Edge will join Terri, Bindi and Robert as well as a host of special guests in celebrating Steve Irwin Day at Australia Zoo, with Terri urging everyone to get involved and help continue Steve's legacy.
"I think it is still terribly important that we remember and honour what Steve stood for," said Terri.
"He always believed that family came first and was passionate about standing strong as a Wildlife Warrior. He lived his life fighting to protect wildlife and wild places. Now we must continue his work."
