Animal Planet brings to life the legacy of Australian conservationist Steve Irwin

The late Steve Irwin’s family – Bindi, Robert and Terri Irwin – feature in a new series that captures the family’s true love for wildlife

Australia Zoo, home of Crocodile Hunter and original Wildlife Warrior, Steve Irwin, is the backdrop of Animal Planet’s latest series, ‘Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors’. But the Zoo is more than just a place of interest and recreation in Queensland, Australia. The 26-episode series showcases the fabulous work of the dedicated team at the Zoo led by the Irwin family – Bindi, Robert and Terri Irwin – as they go through their less than average day-to-day lives in and around it. ‘Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors’ premieres on September 16, 2013, and will air Monday to Friday at 9 PM.

At the heart of Australia Zoo is a passionate and inspiring team unified by their love of animals, which carries forward the late Steve Irwin’s amazing legacy for wildlife conservation and welfare. Be it a tiger tooth extraction, a koala that’s been hit by a car or tracking a crocodile in the wild, these Wildlife Warriors are taking Steve’s relentless fight for the preservation of wildlife to the next generation.

Capturing every rescue, every operation and every animal saved on film, not to mention the myriad of weird, wonderful and downright bizarre things that occur within the Australia Zoo every single day of the year, the show highlights the pioneering work of the Australia Zoo and its committed staff.

Meet programme development manager Laurie and learn from his Africa programme, visit Cameron the artist as he crafts an amazing sculpture, spend time with veterinarian Amber and witness the world-leading hospital she runs before hanging out with tiger supervisor Giles while he mates two endangered tigers. Also there to reinforce the Irwin legacy through their presence in each episode is the late Steve Irwin’s family – 14-year-old daughter Bindi, nine-year-old son Robert and wife Terri Irwin.

The show also ventures outside the zoo walls to document more wildlife conservation work done by the Australia Zoo staff and the Irwin family. Whether it’s the Weipa crocodile expedition or a trip to the research centre at Wynton to take in some dinosaur fossils with Robert, these trips will give us the ability for breadth in the storytelling and emphasize the groundbreaking conservation work being carried out.

While Steve’s legacy sets the footprints for a momentous movement, it’s truly up to the next generation to take up the fight to save our wildlife and move others to make their mark.
