Honor: Steve Irwin to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame 11 years after his tragic death… as wife Terri, daughter Bindi, and son Bob are expected to attend the ceremony.
Irwin became a global star, particularly in the US, for his crocodile wrangling exploits and wildlife conservation efforts.
The world was shocked on September 4, 2006, when he died aged 44 after a stingray struck him with a barb to the heart while filming on the Great Barrier Reef near Port Douglas.
Wildlife warriors from around the world will attend the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner on May 5 in Beverly Hills to celebrate his life and legacy.
