'Crocodile Hunter' Irwin killed

Australian naturalist and television personality Steve Irwin has been killed by a stingray during a diving expedition off the Australian coast.

Mr Irwin, 44, died after being struck in the chest by the stingray's barb while he was filming a documentary in Queensland's Great Barrier Reef.

Paramedics from Cairns rushed to the scene but were unable to save him.

Mr Irwin was known for his television show The Crocodile Hunter and his work with native Australian wildlife.

The loss of a man who had done so much not just for his native Australia but also for nature across the world.
For while he was a television personality, first and foremost I believe he was an educator, bringing the things we had only previously seen in books and few television documentries to the format of a fast and (often very) dangerous insight into the animal kingdom.
