    How wonderful that someone has the guts to continue to spread the love of wildlife and the message of conservation in an enthusiastic loving way. Good on him for having the courage to do such a thing with all the understandable Steve Irwin comparisons.. Brave man indeed!! I hope he goes a long way and that everyone gives him the same love and warmth they gave to a certain other person that was spreading the same message. Good on him!!
