After his NFL career, Kareem plans to study marine biology. In keeping with his passionate nature, Kareem joined the Board of Directors for WAVE Foundation at Newport Aquarium to get a head start on learning as much as he can about conservation and the importance of education.

Kareem says, “Becoming a member of the WAVE Board was a no-brainer for me. I want to make a positive impact in my community that will change the world. What better way to do that than by educating and cultivating young minds?

“I believe the best way to create an impactful change that will last begins with the youth. They are our future and our hope for positive change. There is no foundation making a lasting impact like WAVE. I am grateful for all that they do and know that my donations are creating a lasting impact on the future of our oceans and Earth.”

The WAVE Foundation at Newport Aquarium is a nonprofit organization that engages and educates the community about the wonders of aquatic life and the importance of conservation.
