Home Off-Topic Steve Irwin gets his own Google Doodle to commemorate his birthday

On Friday, the late Steve Irwin would’ve turned 49.

To commemorate the late animal conservationist and TV personality, who passed away in 2006, Google will unveil a Doodle in his honour.

The main Doodle features Steve holding on to a crocodile, as he was remembered for. It’s animated, so when users click through, there’s more images with the family and other animals.

“Today’s Google Doodle acknowledges the life and achievements of my husband Steve Irwin, whose efforts to protect wildlife and wild places have been recognised as the most extensive of any conservationist,” Terri Irwin, the wife of Steve, wrote in a blog post.

“We are so proud that his legacy lives on, as that was his greatest wish. He once said, ‘I don’t care if I’m remembered, as long as my message is remembered.'” 

The Doodle will be live in Australia, the U.S., Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America from Feb. 22 at 12:01 a.m. in each country, and run from 24 hours.

On the day, Google Assistant users can also hear about Steve’s journey when they ask, “Hey Google, crikey.”
