Blakeslee Krusen is an eighth grade student at Palm Beach Day Academy in Palm Beach, Florida. She is a founding member of the Environmental club, on the Varsity Tennis Team, and had a leading role in the school play. Living so close to the ocean and intracoastal helped Blakeslee realize how important it is to preserve marine habitats. She does this by picking up trash on beaches, planting native species, and improving local water quality. Blakeslee is so excited to be a EarthEcho Water Challenge Ambassador and is looking forward to all the opportunities and adventures to come!
