Steve Irwin Gala Dinner celebrates the life and legacy of the original wildlife warrior - Steve Irwin.

We invite you to join us at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner on May 13th in Los Angeles, honoring the greatest Wildlife Warrior that ever lived!

Interact with incredible wildlife as our khaki crew roams the room and enjoy a star-studded evening as we tell the world about the importance of protecting our wildlife and wild places.

It wouldn’t be the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner without Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin, the support of Wildlife Warriors and special appearances from celebrity guests!

Steve had a vision for conservation where people and wildlife could live harmoniously alongside one another. Today, Steve’s legacy lives on through the support of people like you!
