‘Want to share a piece of my father w/ the world,’ Meadow tweeted. She also shared a picture of herself as a toddler with her father. 

The charitable foundation has a simple mission statement: to “Do Good”. It primarily aims to work with those involved in marine conservation. The foundation will fund research, including student scholarships, into marine biology and conservation. 

According to the foundation’s website, Paul was passionate about the ocean and had studied marine biology in his spare time, even participating in research expeditions. He also made a number of documentaries about sharks with National Geographic. 

“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions,” Meadow said in a statement posted on the foundation’s website. “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.” 

Paul died in a car crash on 30th November. He was the passenger in a car driven by a friend when the car crashed into a lamppost in Los Angeles. Both Walker and his friend died at the scene.
