If there's one thing that I, Steve Irwin, would wanna be remembered for, it's be remembered for passion and enthusiasm. Conservation is my job, my life, my whole persona.
Every cent we earn from Crocodile Hunter goes straight back into conservation. Every single cent.
Iíd love to live until Iím 80. I want to see my daughter grow up; I want to love my wife. I hope I live a long and healthy life; but if I donít, Iíve had such a wonderful, fulfilled life and I get what a lot of other people donít get, which is to educate people about conservation. Thereís my reason for living, my passion. This is why God created me.
Itís no good being a conservationist and keeping your lips sealed tight, no matter what you might be doing physically. Youíve got to tell people what youíre doing so theyíll pick it up too, do the same thing. As for me, Iím going to keep on doing this until I canít do it anymore, and that will be the day when I say goodbye to this world.
See, I've always seen Jacques Cousteau as a hero, mate. He's a legend - like my dad, just a legend. And so what he did for conservation in the '60s through the '70s was just phenomenal.
The Law of conservation of energy tells us we can't get something for nothing, but we refuse to believe it.
