CROCODILE Hunter Steve Irwin will be posthumously honoured with induction into Australian TV’s Hall of Fame at next month's Logie Awards.

The tribute will recognise the TV presenter’s revolutionary impact on the wildlife documentary industry.

Steve, pictured with son Bob, built a loyal worldwide following as he shared his passion for wildlife conservation through his TV series and a feature film.

Steve’s wife Terri Irwin, pictured, will accept the award on his behalf at the Logies, which will be held in Melbourne on May 6.

"Our documentaries started airing in Australia and we were only ever going to do one episode about crocodiles and, in a very short period of time, we'd done 10 episodes to tremendous ratings," Mrs Irwin told TV week.

"Changing the face of television and bringing wildlife back into people’s living rooms in a hands-on way was so important to him."
