American-Australian naturalist, conservationist, author, TV personality and the owner of Australia Zoo in Beerwah, Queensland. A native Oregonian from the United States, she began an independent animal rehabilitation centre for injured predator mammals at age 22 while working for her family's trucking business.
While touring wildlife rehabilitation facilities in Australia in 1991, she had a chance meeting with naturalist Steve Irwin, whose father founded Australia Zoo. The two married in 1992, and went on to co-star in The Crocodile Hunter (1996-2007), their unconventional television nature documentary series and its spin-off series, Croc Files (1999-2001) and The Crocodile Hunter Diaries (2002-2006). They had two children, Bindi and Robert, before Steve Irwin's death in 2006.
Terri Irwin published a memoir, My Steve, about her relationship and marriage with Steve Irwin, in 2007.
She became a naturalised Australian citizen in 2009.
Terri, Bindi and Robert star in the TV series Crikey! It's the Irwins (2018-) which follows their lives and work at the Australia Zoo. Cameras capture the family caring for all the zoo's animals as well as their home life.
