Australia Zoo celebrates Steve Irwin's birthday with never-before-seen 'Crocodile Hunter' footage


On what would have been Steve Irwin's 59th birthday, the Australia Zoo relaunched their YouTube channel, featuring never-before-seen footage of the Irwin family and even clips from "The Crocodile Hunter."

The family made an appearance in the first video of the relaunch, sharing that they were excited to give viewers a taste of some behind-the-scenes action that goes on at the zoo.

The video shows clips of the Irwins working with animals and promises new footage of Steve himself.

"Crikey! In celebration of Steve's birthday, we are thrilled to announce the official launch of Australia Zoo's reimagined YouTube channel," the channel description reads.

"Be part of the Irwin family like never before with exclusive content joining them on their incredible adventures. Plus, be the first to witness never before seen footage from the archives of 'The Crocodile Hunter' and join conservation missions with the Wildlife Warriors team on the frontline," it continues.

Steve Irwin owned and operated the Australia Zoo before his death in 2006. His wife, Terri Irwin, continues to operate the Australia Zoo and tweeted about the revamped YouTube channel on Steve's birthday.

"In celebration of Steve's birthday, we're launching Australia Zoo's reimagined YouTube channel. Check out videos from the Irwin family, Crocodile Hunter, & Wildlife Warriors on the conservation frontline," the tweet reads.

In the video, Terri is joined by her children, Bindi and Robert, to announce the reimagined channel that will provide new videos on a weekly basis.

The Irwin family is about to get a bit bigger, as Bindi announced last year that she and husband Chandler Powell are expecting a child. She has been continually updating her fans on the progress of her pregnancy on her Instagram page.
