Steve Irwin, known to wildlife lovers as The Crocodile Hunter, was given a private funeral service on Saturday.
According to Reuters, Hunter will be laid to rest at his family’s Australia Zoo, located in Queensland.
The Australian government had offered to give Irwin a state funeral, but his father, Bob Irwin, declined.
Later this month, a public memorial service will be held for Irwin. Thousands are expected to attend and pay tribute to his memory.
Irwin died 6 days ago at the age of 44 after being struck in the chest by a stingray barb. He was diving on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef while filming a documentary.
