    Living and Loving the Less Appealing Parts of Conservation!

    Anyone who loves the outdoors and wildlife will cherish this book. While most of us are very good about helping animals survive who are attractive and appealing, such as dolphins, whales, and bald eagles, who looks out for the potentially dangerous and frightening such as venomous snakes and crocodiles? Enter Steve and Terri Irwin, and before them Steve¿s parents, Bob and Lyn. The Crocodile Hunter is a story of living with passion for and helping the unappreciated, and often feared, animals of the wild. The book begins with Steve recollections of growing up to save crocodiles and capturing animals to rescue or to study them (and later releasing them to the wild). The description is simple, unassuming, and utterly irresistible! As a young adult, Steve meets his future wife, and zoo partner, Terri, and the two of them alternate as narrators in the book¿s second half. The Irwin family stands for providing for animals that need help or refuge, educating the public about the needs of animals and how to live with them, and advancing knowledge about animal species. The center of this commitment is Australia Zoo in Queensland, which the family has founded and developed over two generations. Their work is captured in dozens of documentaries, many of which are described in The Crocodile Hunter. Although you will learn a lot about crocodiles in this book, you will learn even more about the great Australian Outback, and the ways that humans and predatory animals come into conflict in ways that are good for neither. The book is loaded with color photographs taken candidly outdoors that capture the incredible adventure that the Irwins have lived. The tone is very much like what you might expect sitting around a campfire at night sharing stories about great adventures you have experienced. I came away very impressed with Terri for taking on the challenges of a new continent and a new set of animals to help after her work with cougars in Oregon. Their experiences as related in The Crocodile Hunter reminded me of the letters of Dr. Jane Goodall in describing her work with chimpanzees in Africa. I also wondered what more each of us can do to help preserve the habitats that allow the rare species of the world to flourish.
