Animal Planet Intl to broadcast programming trubute to Steve Irwin

New Delhi, September 09, 2006: As the world continues to mourn the loss of Steve Irwin, Animal Planet International will broadcast a special full day programming tribute beginning on Sunday, 10th September at midnight. The event will highlight Steve's background and personal history, from his early days at Australia Zoo, to his worldwide fame as the Crocodile Hunter, as well as his boundless passion for wildlife and his family. This special programming marathon will feature some of the best episodes from the long-running Crocodile Hunter series, which showcase Steve's dedication to conservation and his exuberant approach to educating viewers about the natural world.

Discovery Communications is deeply saddened by the tragic and sudden loss of Steve Irwin, who was beloved by millions of fans and animal lovers around the world and was one of our planet's most passionate conservationists. He has graced Animal Planet's air since October 1996 and was essential in building Animal Planet into a global brand.

Rebecca Batties, Executive Vice President of Creative Development for Discovery Networks International, overseeing Animal Planet International said, "Steve was a true pioneer and heralded a fresh and innovative approach to wildlife filmmaking. He invigorated the genre and introduced a new generation of viewers to the natural world with his joyful, enthusiastic style.
