The widow of 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin has hit the Aussie airwaves to forcefully deny reports that the Australia Zoo, her late husband's life's work, will close due to crippling debt.

"I have absolutely no intention of closing Australia Zoo," Terri Irwin firmly stated in an interview with Australian broadcaster ABC. "Our wildlife hospital is running, our wildlife experiences are continuing and we fund our conservation projects with people who come into Australia Zoo. Nothing has closed. Nothing will close."
