MERLIN, Ore. — Wildlife Images Rehabilitation & Education Center is honoring the memory of Steve Irwin on Sunday with the unveiling of two new exhibits dedicated to his family.

The public can get into Wildlife Images for free with a donation of a bag of dog food when the park celebrates "Steve Irwin Day" this weekend.

"The day will also feature the opening of two new exhibits which will be dedicated to Steve & Terri Irwin’s children, Bindi and Robert," the park said in a statement. "Wildlife Images’ executive director, Dave Siddon will also announce a new and exciting partnership with the Irwin family that will support the nonprofit's mission of Saving Wildlife."

Steve Irwin Day will also feature an exhibit with forensic evidence of poaching and other wildlife crimes around the world, Wildlife Images said. The collection is provided by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Forensic Laboratory in Ashland to educate the public on the ongoing threat of poaching and illegal trade.

"On display are more than 100 pieces of evidence collected from the poaching and illegal trade of worldwide wildlife," Wildlife Images said. "This includes an elephant tusk, elephant foot stool, skins and mounts of exotic animals, and even a full polar bear pelt."

Executive director Dave Siddon will also be sharing his own personal collection of Irwin family memorabilia, and telling stories of working alongside the Irwins on projects during their decades-long friendship. The Irwins and the Australia Zoo have donated hundreds of dollars in products and signed merchandise to raffle off during the event.

"Wildlife Images has long valued its ​friendship with the Irwins​ and Australia Zoo," the park said. "The organization is excited for the future and looking forward to sharing the details of this new partnership with the public on Sunday."
