"Born a wildlife warrior, die a wildlife warrior."


Steve Irwin Day, celebrated each year on 15 November, is an annual international event honoring the life and legacy of the one and only Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin! Steve Irwin Day represents the many things Steve was passionate about: FAMILY, WILDLIFE CONSERVATION and FUN!

Khaki is more than a colour. It’s an attitude. It’s a stand to do something positive in our world and a passion to make a difference. And when you make a difference – you KHAKI IT!

Khaki is a symbol of Steve Irwin, the original Crocodile Hunter and Wildlife Warrior. At Australia Zoo and Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors – we continue the legacy of Conservation, Family and Fun that Stevo created – and every day – we KHAKI IT!

When you see that khaki uniform, it is a sign that somebody is there to get in and get their hands dirty and save an animal or campaign for wildlife conservation. You don’t have to be Terri, Bindi or Robert Irwin or a member of the Zoo Crew to be a Wildlife Warrior. Anyone can make a difference. Anyone can KHAKI IT!

Here are some more ideas on how you can KHAKI IT on Steve Irwin Day:

  • Wear khaki and make a donation to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors
  • Celebrate at Australia Zoo on 15 November
  • Renew, reuse and recycle
  • Clean up your local beach
  • Build a possum box or a frog pond in your backyard
  • Lock up your dogs and cats at night.
