Steve Irwin Day- 15th November


If Steve Irwin had a favourite colour, surely it would have been khaki. The khaki uniform was symbolic to the Crocodile Hunter and as been coined into the phrase ‘Khaki It’ for this year’s Steve Irwin Day.


Wildlife WarriorsBy wearing khaki on November 15 you can help raise money for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors. The khaki uniform represents someone who is willing to get in there and get their hands dirty and save animals or campaign for wildlife conservation.

But if you don’t have anything khaki, don’t think you can’t contribute. Anyone can do their bit to make a difference! Whether it’s by yourself, with a community group or with your children, everyone can join in!

Here are some ways you can help out:

• Make a donation to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors

• Reduce, reuse and recycle
• Clean up your local beach
• Build a bird bath, possum box or frog pond in your backyard
