Terri Irwin takes Australian Citizenship
Famous American Terri Irwin, wife of the late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin, has taken Australian Citizenship at a special citizenship ceremony at Australia Zoo yesterday.
Terri Irwin, with children Bindi and Robert by her side, affirmed her allegiance almost two decades after emigrating to Australia.
Ms Irwin spoke of her pride in becoming an official Australian and taking Australian Citizenship and her plans to continue to protect Australian wildlife reserves.
Ms Irwin said she had enough money to continue fighting mining company Cape Alumina's plans for a mine on the 135,000ha Steve Irwin Reserve on Cape York.
