Fort Lauderdale’s Tortuga Music Festival Will Once Again Host Conservation Village
Tortuga Music Festival isn’t just about good tunes and country stars—it’s also about ocean conservation.
Festival attendees will not only get to see Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban and other stars perform April 6 to 8, but will also get to visit the Conservation Village during the weekend.
Located in the heart of the music festival, the Conservation Village aims to educate fans on the issues facing oceans, as well as how they can help make a difference.
Representing Rock The Ocean’s five core issues (turtle conservation, shark conservation, coral reef degradation, marine pollution and overfishing), over 30 organizations have been selected to participate at the festival this year. The organizations will be announced by Tortuga soon.
Conservation Village will hold informational exhibits and will also allow guests to plays games, experience interactive touch tanks, watch cooking exhibitions and discover the latest ocean technology. This year’s theme will be #ChangeTheTide.
Every year, a portion of the proceeds from Tortuga is donated to the Rock The Ocean Foundation. The festival has raised over $1 million in total for the organization.
