Stamp honours Crocodile Hunter

Australian environmentalist and TV star Steve Irwin has been immortalised on a stamp a year after his death.

Irwin, killed by a stingray while filming on the Great Barrier Reef, had spent years performing death-defying feats with dangerous animals.

He gained international celebrity as he raised the profile of wildlife preservation.

The stamp pictures Irwin with his daughter Bindi, son Bob and a snake.

Australia Post says proceeds from the sale of the 50 cent stamp will go to Irwin's conservation charity, Wildlife Warriors.
