On September 4th, 2006, the world's most famous conservationist, Steve Irwin, went out on the ocean to shoot a documentary called Ocean's Deadliest. No one could've anticipated that he'd be killed by an animal that wasn't even on the Ocean's Deadliest list.
Steve was beloved by the world for his passion for wild animals of all kinds, especially crocodiles. So many of us grew up watching Crocodile Hunter and were inspired to work with animals (Ashley included). So what happened on that day in 2006 that led to his death? Should we be worried about stingrays?
Tune in to hear how we can all recreate around stingrays safely.
November 15th is Steve Irwin Day. You can learn more about his zoo and Wildlife Warriors at australiazoo.com.au
Do you like hearing animal attack stories? Do you like True Crime podcasts but hate the feeling of helplessness after listening? The Get Out Alive podcast gives you that True Crime feel, but provides actual tips on how to avoid being attacked yourself.
Host Ashley has a degree in Wildlife Biology and has dipped her toe in many aspects of wildlife biology so far, but especially human-wildlife conflict. Her co-host and best friend/fellow wildlife lover Nick is just along for the ride.
This podcast was born out of Ashley's frustration when handling phone calls from people who were afraid of wild animals and just wanted to kill them. The goal of the podcast is to be honest about the dangers some animal pose, but also be clear that attacks are not nearly as common as we think. Sometimes the show is able to have survivors of attacks or experts on species on the podcast to provide more insight.
