Krystyn Tully

Co-Founder of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper

Can you imagine a world where every waterway is clean enough to swim, pure enough to quench your thirst, and wild enough to toss in a line and pull out a fish for your family? That's the world that Waterkeepers try to create and protect.

I try to bring you "Waterkeeper-y" stories - news about leadership and change for the better. As the co-creator of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and the Waterkeeper Swim Guide and Drink Guide apps, I focus on freshwater issues and the places where humans and water connect.
