Tortuga Music Festival

Come see MST at Conservation Village

Nearly 40 marine conservation and research exhibits will be featured at this year’s festival, which takes place on April 11th and 12th. The key issues that will be address in Conservation Village include shark and sea turtle conservation, overfishing, habitat degradation, loss of coral reefs, marine pollution, and much more.

“The mission of this event from day one has been to call attention to the issues that are killing our oceans,” explained Rock The Ocean founder Chris Stacey. “My goal is to leverage the star power and media clout of these amazing musicians on behalf of the sea turtles, sharks and our oceans in general. We want people to come out and have a great time and of course enjoy the music, but leave with a higher awareness of how serious these problems are and the understanding that every attendee can make a difference.”

That’s why Conservation Village partners won’t just be telling festival-goers about the problems, but they will all offer practical solutions and tools for individuals to help solve these pressing ocean issues.

If you’re in the area, come visit us! MST will have an Ocean Trivia game where participants can learn more about the ocean and its inhabitants, and sign up to win fun prizes.
