(Knoxville,Tennessee) It is with deep regret that I learned this morning of the passing of the famed ‘Crocodile Hunter’, Steve Irwin. Irwin’s contributions to the animal world are legendary.

“I offer my sincere condolences to Terri and the family during this tragedy.  Steve will be sorely missed in the professional community”, said Dan Stockdale of Adventures in Leadership.  “Steve Irwin’s enthusiastic focus on conservation and education has had a positive impact on the millions of us who were fans and who admired him and his approach to animals and education.”

Throughout his career, Steve has contributed vast volumes to the public’s appreciation for the animals who share this great planet with us.  He was always energetically poised to show the natural, instinctive behavior of a plethora of species.  “Steve’s disastrous situation is a stark reminder of the omnipresent danger to all of us who work with animals in the wild and in controlled environments”, said Stockdale.  “He will always be remembered as one of the best in the world.”
