About Steve Irwin Day

This Steve Irwin Day, November 15, wear khaki and start fundraising to continue Steve’s legacy.

Steve Irwin Day continues the legacy of Conservation, Family and Fun that Stevo created. KHAKI IT with us! Steve Irwin Day on November 15 – is an international and annual event to celebrate the extraordinary life of the one and only Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. 

Khaki is more than a colour. It’s an attitude. It’s a stand to do something positive in our world and a passion to make a difference. And when you make a difference – you KHAKI IT!

Khaki is a symbol of Steve Irwin, the original Crocodile Hunter and Wildlife Warrior. At Australia Zoo and Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors – we continue the legacy of Conservation, Family and Fun that Stevo created – and every day – we KHAKI IT!

When you see that khaki uniform, it is a sign that somebody is there to get in and get their hands dirty and save an animal or campaign for wildlife conservation. You don’t have to be Terri, Bindi or Robert Irwin or a member of the Zoo Crew to be a Wildlife Warrior. Anyone can make a difference. Anyone can KHAKI IT!

Here are some more ideas on how you can KHAKI IT on Steve Irwin Day:

  • Wear khaki and make a donation to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors
  • Celebrate at Australia Zoo on 15 November
  • Renew, reuse and recycle
  • Clean up your local beach
  • Build a possum box or a frog pond in your backyard
  • Lock up your dogs and cats at night.


As wildlife warriors, we believe that every life is worth rescuing.
We believe that anyone can be a Wildlife Warrior.
We believe khaki is not just a colour – it’s an attitude!
We believe that if you save one – you can save the species.
We believe that even kids can make a difference.
We believe in living the motto each day – KHAKI IT!

Remember, anyone can make a difference. All you have to do is KHAKI IT!
