Born on July 20, 1964, she spent most of her childhood bicycling around Alton Baker Park or hiking up Spencer Butte. Her family owned a long-haul trucking business and her father frequently brought home wounded animals, which inspired her to pledge her life to wildlife. In 1986, she established a rehabilitation facility called Cougar County to re-educate and release predatory mammals back into the wild.

In 2006, when Terri was on a trek in Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, with her children, Steve passed away of heart injuries after a short-tail stingray pierced his chest. Following the demise of Steve just at the age of 44, Terri was made an Honorary Member of the Order of Australia for services to wildlife conservation in 2006. 

Although it has been more than 12 years since the death of “The Crocodile Hunter,” her love towards Steve hasn’t gone south. She said in an interview,

“To me, Steve was my Prince Charming, he was my happily ever after and we got that. We got 14 years of marriage; we had the best most fantastic adventurous wonderful life that you could imagine. And I was very happy with that.”
