Project Baseline and Brownies Global Logistic staff and volunteers were swept up in Day Two of the Tortuga Music Festival which was filled with a constant flow of people stopping by the Project Baseline booth, photo shoots with country music celebrities and an all-day-and-into-the-night celebration of music and ocean awareness.
The flood of concert goers trending back and forth between the main stages along the beach allowed us to reach out to even more people, share our work and encourage people to take ownership and action for the places they love to play on and under the water.
The crowd swelled when country music stars Maddie and Tae stopped by with Rock The Ocean event founders and producers to take a look at our two-person submersible that supports research missions in environments up to 1,000′ of water.
By the end of Sunday, Project Baseline staff were confident they had reached their goals for this weekend: tell as many people as possible about Project Baseline/PB: Gulfstream, encourage people to take ownership and action on behalf of the “place they love to play” by signing our banner (nearly two hundred signatures and locations were listed!), increase exposure to our program and two key marine issues taking place near the festival grounds in Ft. Lauderdale Beach, FL using social media tags #pbrocks #tortugafest and #conservationvillage through Facebook and Instagram, and foster at least one new Project area by giving away a GoPro camera to a lucky winner selected at random. We can’t wait for next year!
