Sample Event: Chasing Coral Documentary Film Screening


Utilize the power of music to inspire others to take action for the ocean. Host a concert or music festival that supports local conservation initiatives. Get inspired by Rock the Ocean's Tortuga Music Festival.

Alternatively, play the music of singers and musicians who sing or play music about the ocean and conservation. Jack Johnson sings about the issue of plastic pollution in his song "Fragments." Songs for the Sea is a collaborative album featuring female artists from around the world. Oceans Are Talking is an album focused on ocean conservation for kids by Sam Lardner.
