Seeya mate!

I was so sad to hear this news. The first time I ever watched him I watched because he was doing such seemingly dangerous things! But I came back to watch him again because I loved his personality, his passion for his work, incredible enthusiasm, and kind demeanor. Its a real loss to lose someone who impacted so many lives for the better and cared so deeply about conservation, ALL animals, and was so beloved by kids and adults alike. He died far too young.
