"Honored to share my voice today. Thank you @paulwalkerfdn for recognizing my work with @lonelywhale. #TeamLonelyWhale #DoGood," wrote the Entourage star on Instagram, alongside a picture of himself posing with Meadow and the aquarium's executive director Julie Packard.

Meadow is determined to keep her father's memory alive by helping a cause close to his heart. "Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions," she wrote on Instagram, adding "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."
