Jimmy Buffet is fronting the cost for new boats that will be used to help rescue birds and marine life affected by the BP oil disaster. The singer-songwriter was approached by a boat-builder friend who sketched an idea for a rescue vessel—the Shallow Water Attention Terminal (SWAT)—while watching the images of the spill on television.

The first boat, which reportedly costs $43,000 to manufacture, will be donated to University of Southern Mississippi’s Gulf Coast Research Lab in Ocean Springs to assist in efforts to rescue wildlife from soiled shallow marshlands and breeding grounds.

Three other boats are in the works.

In addition to his boat venture, to show support for the people of the area the Margaritaville Man is hosting a free concert on the beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The 63-year-old will be joined by his Coral Reefer Band and Sonny Landreth, Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Jesse Winchester, and Allen Toussaint. The event will be broadcast live on CMT on July 1.
