The Paul Walker Foundation is fulfilling his legacy, passion for the ocean and spontaneous goodwill.
Passion for the Ocean
Paul Walker was best known for his acting career but his passion was the ocean. He studied marine biology and spent most of his free time in the ocean. He fulfilled a lifelong dream as part of the crew in the National Geographic series great white / Shark Men led by Dr. Michael Domeier of the Marine Conservation Science Institute, where they tagged great white sharks to gather DNA samples, and study their migratory patterns especially those associated with mating and birthing over a five year span. This is just one example of many where he dedicated his time to learn more about the ocean and pass on his knowledge. The foundation will continue these efforts.
“Paul was the kind of person that valued and respected others. He would go out of his way to do the simplest things from stopping to open the door for others, making sure he looked someone in the eye when they were speaking, or help someone that clearly needed to be helped. Sometimes, I would secretly get annoyed because I would see a situation developing,and knew my day was changing because we were going to have help somebody for the next 20 minutes instead of be where we need to be. His heart had to give that kind of attention everywhere that he could. That was the kind of character he had.” - Brandon Birtell
“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others.” - Meadow Walker
EMPOWERING AND INSPIRING OTHERS IS SOMETHING WE CAN ALL PRACTICE DAILY AND IS AT THE HEART OF THIS ORGANIZATION.
The Paul Walker Foundation will continue to do the work that Paul Started. We are focused on his passions and dedicated to his legacy. He is always in our hearts and we are reminded daily to do good and live life like Paul. Paul's passion for the ocean, a curious mind and a spontaneous heart lives on in The Paul Walker Foundation.
