Australians paid tribute to late CROCODILE HUNTER STEVE IRWIN at his zoo in Queensland on Tuesday (04Sep07). Irwin's widow Terri and children Bindi and Bob spent the first anniversary of his death in private, but appreciated the fans' memorial at Australia Zoo. Irwin was killed by a stingray barb while snorkelling near the Great Barrier Reef on 4 September 2006. Speaking in parliament on Tuesday, Queensland Premier Peter Beattie said, "The spirit of Steve Irwin lives on in many ways. I again pay tribute to his energy, joy and commitment to conservation and wildlife, and acknowledge all those who continue his work today." Irwin's family are planning to honour the wildlife expert at Steve Irwin Day, which will be marked across Australia on 15 November (07).
