Sunset

On January 21, 2007, a tribute to Steve Irwin and his last television project was shown on The Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. Beginning the evening was the naturalist's last documentary, Ocean's Deadliest. Lurking only a few feet below the surface of eastern Australia's crystalline ocean are some of the most dangerous animals on the planet. For thousands of years, venomous snakes, salt-water crocodiles and immense sharks have patrolled these waters. Irwin is joined by oceanographer Philippe Cousteau, grandson of Jacques, in Ocean's Deadliest as they explore the waters between Australia's Gold Coast and the Great Barrier Reef. Cousteau was aboard Croc One with Irwin during the expedition when he was struck by a stingray. The Tribute looked at his life through the eyes of those who knew him best. Terri Irwin, family, and friends shared personal stories about the incredible man the world came to know and love as the Croc Hunter. Through never-before-seen footage, the program honored the Crocodile Hunter's passion and enthusiasm for spreading wildlife conservation.
