(WJW) — “Khaki it!” – It’s “more than a colour. It’s an attitude,” according to the Australia Zoo.
Khaki – the symbol of Irwin, the original Crocodile Hunter and Wildlife Warrior – is worn every day by “Wildlife Warriors” to continue the legacy of conservation, family and fun that they say Irwin created.
Irwin died in 2006 when a stingray barb pierced his heart.
His daughter, Bindi Irwin, works to keep his legacy living on forever. She wrote on social media, ” Your legacy will live on forever. I love you for even longer. November 15, Steve Irwin Day.”
The zoo celebrates the day with 10 percent off visitors’ entry price for wearing their “best khaki” or a live show where the Irwin family feeds the crocs.
It’s also a day where people around the world join together to raise money for Australia Zoo so they can continue Steve’s conservation work and the preservation of wildlife.
“It’s a stand to do something positive in our world and a passion to make a difference,” the zoo’s website says.
