Growing up beside the sea, she is very passionate about doing all she can to protect our oceans and marine life, as well as protecting natural spaces on land. Bláithín also loves art and photography, and regularly writes children’s books that share important messages and a love of language with the next generation. Bláithín believes that travel and making connections with people are the best ways to broaden ones mind, and so she is very excited to be on the Action Panel. She hopes to meet new people, have new experiences, and hopefully bring about positive change.
