Stephen Robert "Steve" Irwin (February 22, 1962 - September 4, 2006), also known as the Crocodile Hunter, was an Australian wildlife expert, television personality, and conservationist. He achieved worldwide fame from the television series The Crocodile Hunter, an internationally broadcast wildlife documentary series which he co-hosted with his wife Terri. Together, the couple also owned and operated Australia Zoo, founded by Irwin's parents in Beerwah, about 80 kilometers (50 mi) north of the Queensland state capital city of Brisbane.

On September 4, 2006, it was announced that Irwin died after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming an underwater documentary film titled Ocean's Deadliest. The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship MY Steve Irwin was named in his honor. However, shortly thereafter, speculations have turned up, claiming that Irwin faked his death to escape his celebrity life.
