Meadow Walker’s late father, Paul Walker, would be proud of her for continuing his work.
Walker’s 17-year-old daughter presented Entourage actor Adrian Grenier with this year’s Paul Walker Ocean Leadership Award for his work with The Lonely Whale Foundation. Grenier co-founded the foundation in 2015 to raise awareness about marine species and encourage others to advocate for ocean health.
In receiving his award, Grenier stated, “It’s an honor to receive the Paul Walker Ocean Leadership Award. I share Paul’s inquisitiveness for the mystery of the ocean and the great potential it holds for new discoveries that will enrich the lives and inspire the curiosities of the next several generations.” Like Walker, Grenier has a keen interest in improving the oceanic environment. “I also share Paul’s passion for ocean health and recognize that we have an opportunity to create real and lasting change that will benefit our marine environment and ultimately ourselves.”
Meadow Walker created the Paul Walker Foundation in 2015 to continue her father’s legacy in the area of marine wildlife. Last year, Walker discussed her intentions on her Instagram. “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. I am tremendously proud of be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood.”
