On April 13th & 14th, Fort Lauderdale Beach will host Rock the Ocean’s inaugural Tortuga Music Festival. The beach will be transformed into an oceanfront music experience, featuring top country and rock artists and local culinary delights on the shores of the Florida coast. Together with Rock The Ocean, Tortuga will pair music with meaning by raising awareness about marine conservation and issues affecting the world’s oceans.
While the concert is going to be absolutely unbelievable, i mean come on look at the lineup...
The Rock The Ocean Foundation is dedicated to supporting scientific research, education and increasing public awareness about the issues impacting our oceans.
Think about it, did you know?
- Plastic waste kills up to 1 million sea birds, 1 hundred thousand sea mammals and countless fish each year.
- 70% of the world's fisheries are fully exploited, over exploited or depleted!
- Humans have caused the depletion of 90% of the oceans large predators due to unsustainable fisheries.
- Up to 39 million tons of unwanted fish are killed and dumped back into the sea each year.
I know it may be a little too late to buy tickets, airfare, & hotel to come join us this weekend (although if youre able to, send me an email and we should meet up!), but its definitely not too late to help support the cause!
