Who is Paul Padgett?
Paul Padgett has spent his professional career working in photography, videography, and
music, but his other major production is saving the world through environmentalism and
philanthropy. His work as a musician, composer, and producer led him to found his nonprofit
Rockers 4 Wildlife that was conceptualized while working with Slash from Guns n’ Roses at the
Wildlife Way Station. Paul and Rockers 4 Wildlife work hard to be a voice for the voiceless
animals of the world both domestically and abroad by participating in emergency rescues and by
planning and implementing solutions for environmental issues.

After a tumultuous childhood, Paul rose like a phoenix to apply himself and become an
entrepreneur and philanthropist. Despite living in a rocky and sometimes abusive household, as
a small child he started creating a neighborhood landscaping business as well as working a paper
route. At 18, he got his contractor’s license and focused on using his skills to rebuild cities after
tornados, fires, floods, hurricanes, and more.

Paul moved his family from Oklahoma to California in 2003 to continue producing in the
entertainment industry and to build homes in Beverly Hills and Hollywood affected by the
Northridge Earthquake. Since then his interest in humanitarian and environmental efforts has
only grown; he tends a 5¼ acre Hass avocado ranch supplying Baja Fresh, Chipotle, and Rubio’s
with fresh, affordable, organic produce, works with the Air Force Civil Air Patrol 59 th Squadron
out of Hemet, California as a search and rescue and disaster relief pilot, has saved 11 lives as an
emergency first responder diver, supports people fighting prescription and illicit drug abuse, and
produces documentary films about humanitarian and environmental issues.

Paul currently has multiple film projects in motion right now. His film Mission Earth is
culminating after over ten years of studying, filming, and aligning solutions to save the human
race and the other wonderful creatures of Earth and is slated for release late 2017. Paul is also
in principal filming right no w on Chimp Village for the Wildlife Way Station, where they’re
creating the first habitat of its kind for chimps.

Along with doing research on the coral reefs and kelp forests, Paul’s primary work in the
oceans is out of cage studies with great white, tiger, bull, and reef sharks. He recently
completed a two year project planting 157,000 coral reefs in Key Largo to provide oxygen to the
planet. He also participates in massive undertaking efforts to remove trash from the oceans
including clean up of Catalina Harbor, which nets five tons of trash build up per year.

He also has a flair for the arts; for four decades he has worked as a professional
photographer and has produced music for legends like the Gap Band, Wayman Tisdale, Cameo,
Kool & the Gang, Gladys Knight, and more and makes an effort to donate proceeds from his art
sales to saving the environment and helping raise money for groups like Mi Casa, St. Jude
Hospitals, Wildlife Way Station, and the Sea Shepherd.

Paul says he has become successful from always staying focused, being extremely
motivated, and being around great mentors, emphasizing the importance of efficiency and follow
through. Word, integrity ands a handshake are the mantra this country boy will follow to the
grave!

Show Description: 

Our mission here at Rockers 4 Wildlife is to help implement solutions by strategic planning and implementation from start to finish with any size team needed for whatever it is we're facing.

We work hard to be a voice for the voiceless animals and humans of the world that need any type of help nationally and internationally.

Paul Padgett's background as an emergency first responder among many other certifications, and his wife Tracie as an emergency nurse and emergency first responder put's us front line on any type of situation.
 
From saving new born babies with complications, to ocean/water rescues, fire rescue, tornados, hurricanes, earthquake's and tsunami's. We cover it all!!!

Over 32 years Paul and his teams have been saving lives both human and animals!

Don't be fooled by our name Rockers 4 Wildlife. Our name evolved from being a musical family. I have had people ask is this just for musicians.

You don't have to be a musician or a rocker to help Rockers 4 Wildlife achieve success  working towards our goals to make this a better place for all of us that inhabit this beautiful planet.
 
All you have to do is want to help in some way. we all  know that we have to do something to make some changes before we run out of resources.
 
We have to come together for the beautiful people and animals of this planet that are now going extinct or on their way out soon.
 
Lets work to make sure humans don't end up on that list!
 
Lets do something about it together!

When we band together we can work to help insure that the extinction list doesn't end up having humans printed on it!

With small changes like taking fifty cents a day can have a huge impact in a positive way.
 
Not only that, it makes you feel warm and fuzzy donating to something your passionate about.
 
I know the handful of us as a team, even if it's small can make a difference together.

This is what team stands for:

T OGETHER
E VERYBODY
A CHIEVES
M ORE

Small amounts of effort and conscious thought can compound into huge efforts by lots of people over time. The power of one does make a difference!
 
I know I don't have to share with one single person that doesn't realize something has to change across the board on all subjects of our lives, human or animal.
 
We are in times that the truth be told as it is to all of us so we have a chance to pass this beautiful planet to our kids and grand kids.

Here at Rockers 4 Wildlife we go out into some of the toughest terrains, oceans and seas of the planet to see and document, then help find and implement solutions.
 
We need help to make it bigger, better, and faster to make the changes needed.

We have easy ways to make big differences that we can do together through our affiliations with all the wonderful sanctuaries and different projects we've worked on for years. 
 
Hey by the way, check out the pictures on each page to check all the different pictures I used from some of the gallery art for the backdrop of the pages.
 
I hope you enjoy the journey it takes you on through my eyes when we trekked into the unknown. The flow to the last page leads to a tranquil place just seeing the silky waters flow with grace.

Lets do this together! We can make a difference by skipping a latte or whatever your vise may be. It's what we did when we started out. Skip it for a day and put it toward continued projects that help us achieve our mission to stand up and do the best we can today for a better tomorrow! Lets rock this thing called life!!!!
