Steve Irwin, the late beloved Crocodile Hunter, is set to receive a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and we could not be happier. 


The Walk of Fame Committee announced the decision over the weekend, honouring the amazing nature expert for his "outstanding contribution to the entertainment industry through his wildlife documentaries".  


"Steve has always said that he didn't care if anyone remembered him, as long as they remembered his message," Terri Irwin, Steve's lovely wife, said in a statement from the family's Zoo conservation site in Western Queensland.


"I truly believe that this recognition for Steve's achievements will ensure that his message of wildlife conservation is remembered."

Steve Irwin was a popular fixture on all of our televisions, thanks to his brilliant show The Crocodile Hunter, and energetic appearances on late night talk shows, including The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.


The father-of-two died suddenly from a stingray attack in September 2006, while filming an underwater documentary in Queensland's Batt Reef.


"This is the most extraordinary moment, honouring Dad's legacy and all that he achieved for global conservation," said his lovely daughter, Bindi.

"Dad changed the world by reaching out to people through their television screens to bring them on the adventure of a lifetime. To have his name on a Hollywood star means the world as we carry on with his important work."


Irwin is being honoured alongside an impressive 2018 class including stars Jack Black, Kirsten Dunst, Jeff Goldblum, Jennifer Lawrence, Snoop Dogg, Weird Al Yankovic and Sir Richard Branson among others.


What a wonderful legacy!
