Steve Irwin died in 2006 when he was struck in the heart by a stingray while filming a wildlife show. The couple had been together for 14 years before his death. His family, Terri and their two children, Bindi, 19, and Robert, 14, cope with his death by spending quality time together each night.
“We’d each say our favorite part of the day, what we were most looking forward to tomorrow and a good deed we did that day,” she said. “You can’t focus on yourself. You need to focus on what you’re doing for others and then you can start to heal.”

The family still live at the Australia Zoo and are focused on maintaining Steve’s legacy of wildlife conservation.
“Steve was someone who was larger than life and really did live life to the fullest,” she said. “Even though he died at 44, years of age he lived such a full life and that’s what I want to do and share.”
The family will be returning to Animal Planet with a new series this fall that will follow their day-to-day lives at the Australia Zoo and their work with their nonprofit organization, Wildlife Warriors
"We do want to carry on in Dad's footsteps, and make sure everything he worked so hard for continues on," daughter Bindi said on a January broadcast of "Today."
