Few celebrities touched the world as Steve Irwin did. He was loved by people from all walks of life and his vast efforts at conservation continue to make a difference all over the globe. His wife Terri's commitment to continuing his legacy is admirable and inspirational to so many who can benefit from her strength and conviction. Steve and Terri's story is not just one of taking a noble cause to a new height, but is also a fairytale love affair. When Terri, an American tourist in Australia, first laid eyes on Steve, she saw a real-life action hero. She was, however, disappointed to hear that his heart belonged to another. Steve offered to introduce her to his girlfriend, whistled and presented his best girl: a Staffordshire bull terrier called Sui. Later, Steve took Terri on a remarkable first date - a canoe ride through the swamp at night. Terri describes the luminescent eyes of the crocodiles flashing in the beam of her torchlight. When Steve then confidently climbed out of the boat and into the water, she knew she would never feel unsafe again.Steve and Terri married in June 1992 and the footage of their crocodile-trapping honeymoon became the first episode of The Crocodile Hunter. Together, Steve and Terri changed the perception of conservation and sparked global interest in the animals of the Australian bush. This is their story.
