February 22 was the day Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin was born.

September 4 was the day he died.

But November 15 will be the date he is remembered around the world.

The Veronicas yesterday rustled up support for Steve Irwin Day, which will be used as a fundraiser for one of Steve's greatest passions, Wildlife Warriors Worldwide.

Australia Zoo is campaigning for workplaces and schools around the world to have their own Khaki Day, where individuals each donate $2.

The Veronicas, Jess and Lisa Origliasso said the charity's conservation message resonated with their young fans.

"Steve Irwin was an inspiration to them, as he was to us," Jess said.

"These activities are a fun way for everyone to get involved in conservation and to help keep Steve's dream alive through the work of Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Worldwide."
