About

Naturalists are "volunteer teachers" who share their knowledge of the Aquarium animals and habitats with the guests. The only thing you need to bring is enthusiasm and the ability to work a 3-hour shift once a week. We provide the training.

Training is done with a staff interpretor or guide and is "on-the-job".

  • Work independently to proactively engage and converse with guests at and about exhibits

  • Instruct guests in and demonstrate proper handling techniques of animals and TSA property through interpretive methods
