Like Rorie, Robert is all too familiar with loss.

His father Steve, known to the world as the “Crocodile Hunter,” died at the age of 44 on September 4, 2006 after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray.

Steve is survived by his wife Terri, daughter Bindi and son Robert – who was only three years old when his father died.

Like Heath’s sister, Robert and the Irwin family have vowed to keep Steve’s memory alive through their conservation work at Australia Zoo.
