Along with getting to experience touching starfish, sea cucumbers, urchins and other cold-water creatures, you will be interacting with guests, answering questions, and ensuring the safety of the animals. This is a great environment to learn about ocean animals and use your communication skills with guests from all around the world! During a typical shift, you'll ask guests to rinse their hands with water (removing any soaps or other residues), you might show a guest how to get "hugged" by a sea urchin, encourage them to touch a squishy sea cucumber or share how some types of sea anemones can live to be 150 years old!

No previous experience required, just bring an enthusiasm for learning & sharing about ocean animals! This is a year-round opportunity and requires volunteers to commit to 4 hours per month for the duration of their volunteering. This volunteer position does not include any feeding, cleaning or care of animals.
