The special public memorial held last week in honour of the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, will be released on DVD, his manager and long-time friend says.

John Stainton today announced the service titled He Changed Our World, staged at the Crocoseum at the Irwin family’s Australia Zoo wildlife park on the Sunshine Coast last Wednesday, would be available by October 14 through EMI Music Australia.

Up to 300 million people around the world watched the service, which featured tributes from international stars Russell Crowe, Cameron Diaz, Hugh Jackman and Justin Timberlake.

All royalties from the special edition DVD would go to Steve’s Wildlife Warriors fund to support work with endangered species, habitat protection and running the zoo’s wildlife hospital.”

We have been overwhelmed by the reaction to the television broadcast, which seems to have captured the love and emotion that filled the 5000-seat Crocoseum,” Mr Stainton said in a statement.

EMI Music Australia’s managing director, John O’Donnell, said the DVD contributed to “the preservation of Steve’s memory”.

Irwin died after a stingray plunged its barb into his chest in a freak accident off the far north Queensland coast on September 4, prompting shock and disbelief worldwide.AAP

Jemima

LITTLE Jemima Moore is a typical Queensland nine-year-old. She loves her family, her mates and animals.Which is why she can’t wait to become a Wildlife Warrior and get one of The Sunday Mail’s special Wildlife Warrior wristbands in two weeks.

“They look great and all my friends want one,” Jemima said. “Especially as the money goes to helping animals.”

Release of the stylish, green wristbands with Wildlife Warrior embossed on them follows months of planning between The Sunday Mail and the original Wildlife Warrior Steve Irwin as a means of raising much-needed funds for his Wildlife Warrior Worldwide conservation charity.

With the backing of Irwin’s family and WWW, The Sunday Mail, a proud sponsor of the charity, is pressing ahead with the initiative.The wristbands will be available from newsagents for $1 on presentation of a token from The Sunday Mail with all proceeds going to Wildlife Warriors Worldwide.

Irwin’s daughter Bindi, who has vowed to continue her father’s wildlife crusade, will become the face of WWW, starting with the wristband campaign.

So get ready for The Sunday Mail on October 15 and buy a WWW wristband in the knowledge all proceeds are going to help achieve the Irwin dream.

Not exactly the archives mate…

I needed an antidote to all of the schmoopy tributes out there with low resolution pics against bad country music…

His family loved him because he was passionate and fun. So this little clip seemed appropriate šŸ˜‰
