Ocean Ambassadors


Have questions or want to volunteer? Give us a shout and we'll be glad to help!


Project.Bleu was founded in September 2014 by Crystal Beckel in Saint Petersburg, FL. A Central Florida transplant, Crystal quickly realized that the large Pinellas County community needed an extra voice to help aid in awareness and education efforts to an already thriving mecca of ocean based organizations.

Saint Petersburg is a hub for marine science, yet the majority of the local community remains blind to the dangers and effects that this tourist town is leaving on our oceans. After seeking more information and getting to know the locals on a  "what do you know?" basis, it became evident that many only viewed the ocean from a surface standpoint.

Project.Bleu was born and continues to grow using grassroots marketing techniques. We are small, but we are loud! We have a vision and a voice and we want to spread the word.

We want to be the voice for those who cannot speak, be an inspiration to those who fail to see. We want to ensure that future generations are able to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the beaches and oceans that we are able to enjoy today. There is no better time than now to begin this journey. Our oceans need us right now, more than ever before!
