TRIBUTE TO LYN IRWIN (MUM)
On February 11th 2000, Steves mum, Lyn Irwin, was tragically killed in a single vehicle accident. Lyn, along with her husband Bob, created and built Australia Zoo in 1970. Lyn was a true matriarch. She laid down the original foundation and core values that are still the driving force behind Australia Zoo today.
Australia Zoo will miss you Lyn!

We love you
Lyn Irwin (Mum) more than anything in the world. The pain of your tragic
sudden death will never wane.
When you established Australia Zoo back in 1970, you started a conservation revolution.
Im not really sure how Dad and I are going to make it without you. Luckily your daughters, grandchildren, close family and friends have learned from you the essence of life LOVE, PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM.
For as long as we live, we will do what you would want us to do. When times or decisions get tough, well close our eyes and listen for your voice to help us through.
We have never felt pain like this before and Im sorry, so sorry Mum, but well grieve for you forever.

In Memory of Lyn Irwin (top)
Australian wildlife conservation was Lyn Irwins true passion. Throughout her life Lyn established wildlife techniques that are still in practice today at Australia Zoo. In continuing Lyn Irwins efforts for wildlife, donations can be made to the Lyn Irwin Memorial Fund, which will be maintained by Australia Zoo. These donations will go towards Australia Zoos state of the art hack out facility. Bob and Lyn Irwin established this great facility as a rehabilitation centre for Australian native wildlife. Five acres of fenced habitat provides rehabilitated animals with food and shelter allowing them to roam freely aiding in their safe return to the wild. The facility is one of Queenslands largest supporting a myriad of Australian native species. With your kind donations we will continue Lyn Irwins dream and through Australian wildlife Lyn lives.
All donations can be made payable to the Lyn Irwin Memorial Fund. Please mail to the following address:
