This is an achievement of a life time! I am beyond thrilled to recieve this award, and hope to bring great honor to Steve's name, continuing in his footsteps as someone who is passionate and enthusiastic about wildlife conservation.
I am to accept this award in Queensland, Australia, on November 22, 2014, at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner, presented by Australia Zoo. It is a black-tie event "with a touch of khaki!"
The Steve Irwin Gala Dinner is the major fundraising event for the non-profit charity, Wildlife Warriors, and all proceeds from the dinner will go to fund the Wildlife Hospital as well as local conservation programs.
Because of this, I must raise my own funds to travel to Australia to received this award. Please consider sponsoring this dream of a lifetime. Oh, and while you're at it, do just a small part, and begin recycling! :D
Thank you very much and God bless you!
