HOLLYWOOD, CA (Tucson News Now) -

One of Australia's icons will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame later this month.

Steve Irwin, known for his charismatic TV personality and animal conservation, will receive his own star in Hollywood on April 26.

Irwin was killed in 2006 in Port Douglas, Queensland, by a large stingray while filming a segment for the documentary, Ocean's Deadliest.  

His legacy is carried on by his wife Terri Irwin, and two kids Robert and Bindi, who have taken on Steve's love for animal care and conservation.

His daughter Bindi tweeted, "Dad changed the world by reaching out to people through their television screens to bring them on an adventure of a lifetime. We hope to see you in LA!."

Fans from all over the world took to Twitter to share their excitement and appreciation.
