I was overjoyed to learn that Steve Irwin accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior before he died. Steve Irwin was a good man; he did a great deal for conservation. He said on several occasions that he honestly believed that the reason he was put on this earth was to raise awareness of the need for wildlife conservation and to protect animals and bushland for future generations.
